COVID-19: ADVICE FOR STaff, STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY

Art, Design & Craft Facilities

Mobile Art School

Mobile Art School is an outreach project, aimed at engaging and connecting schools across Aberdeen and beyond, to improve the awareness and understanding of the creative industries.

We are taking our expertise and resources beyond the walls of Robert Gordon University, offering free, high impact workshops, with state-of-the-art creative tools to schools across Aberdeen City and Shire.

We want to provide students and teachers the opportunity to learn, create and work together, exploring and experiencing the personal and social enrichment that creative learning presents – a powerful, transformative and essential part of modern life and a vital element in Scotland’s future.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Mobile Art School is going virtual! Check out our YouTube channel where we have a series of online, mini-workshops, that can be done at home or in a class, with easy to find materials. These workshops will cover a range of art and design subjects, that are not only great fun, but will give you a flavour of what a career in the creative industries involves.
