Opt in for Art
Exhibition 20 April – 6 May 2007
Opt in for Art presents the works of over 90 young artists. It marks the culmination of a two-year education programme which offers opportunities for children and young people throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians to engage with contemporary art. The exhibition presents a range of projects undertaken over the past two years, in collaboration with primary schools, secondary schools, youth groups and of course the young people themselves.
The art was produced in a variety of settings: in formal school groups or more informal youth settings; in one-off workshops or over a period of weeks or months; as products made by individuals working alone or as part of a wider collective; within the Gallery or as outreach projects.
