Situated in rural Stirlingshire – just 20 miles north of Glasgow/20 miles west of Stirling – Art4You Scotland offers a wide variety of friendly and inclusive art classes that are suitable for all abilities.
Ballochruin Farm is a scenic and inspiring backdrop for an art studio, and in good weather it is possible to head outside with an easel and capture the essence of a Scottish pastoral landscape. Within the bright Art4Scotland studio, up to 12 individuals can have fun trying a variety of art techniques and mediums, with each person positively encouraged to express their individuality and to find the fun in art. Led by painter and art lecturer Ewen Duncan, the team at Ballochruin can help every budding artist to develop their personal technique and style.
