Air Iomlaid (on exchange)

10.04.10 – 09.05.10

Air Iomlaid (On Exchange) was an ambitious education project involving 60 primary school pupils from Tollcross Primary School, Edinburgh and Bun-sgoil Shle`te, Skye. Conceived by artist Julie Brook and The Fruitmarket Gallery’s Children and Young People’s Programme Manager Johnny Gailey, following a process devised by Julie Brook, the project involved the children in an intensive process of art tuition over 18 months. The children learned to draw and paint outside in their own and each other’s environments, and to work up their immediate responses in individual and collaborative drawings and paintings, poetry, film and animation. This exhibition was a celebration of the project and an opportunity to present the children’s work.

Is e pro`iseact foghlaim glo`ir-mhiannach a tha ann Air Iomlaid a’ toirt a-steach 60 sgoilearan bun-sgoile bho Bhun-sgoil Chrois na Ci`se an Du`n E`ideann agus bho Bhun-sgoil Shle`ite san Eilean Sgi`theanach. Air a tho`iseachadh le neach-ealain Julie Brook agus Manaidsear Pro`gram O`igridh Chloinne is Dhaoine O`ga The Fruitmarket Gallery, Johnny Gailey, an de`idh pro`iseas a dhealbh Julie Brook, tha am pro`iseact seo air a’ chlann a thoirt an sa`s ann am pro`iseas dian de theagasg ealain thairis air 18 mi`osan. Dh’ionnsaich a’ chlann a bhith a’ dealbhadh agus a’ peantadh a-muigh nan a`rainneachd fhe`in agus an a`rainneachd a che`ile, agus a bhith a’ nochdadh na grad-fhreagairtean aca ann an dealbhan, peantadh, ba`rdachd, fiolm is beothachadh fa-leth agus gu co- obrachail. Tha an taisbeanadh seo mar mholadh air a’ phro`iseact agus na chothrom air obair na cloinne a chur air adhart.
