a new art club for young people in dalkeith

Art Club exists because young people asked for it, they campaigned to have more creative activities and now they do! Art Club is hosted by local charity, the Bill Russell Woodburn Youth Project. We have two groups that run at Art Club.

Monday Night Enterprise Group

This is where young people design their own products and learn all about business and how to sell them. They get real retail experience and learn to digitally edit their designs using professional software.  It runs during term time and we can take up to 20 young people between the age of 8-14 who live in Dakeith. This group is currently funded by Awards for All and is free, however there is a waiting list.

Thursday Night Art Drop-In

Because the enterprise group was so popular we decided to run a less formal art drop-in and offer creative activities to more young people. At the drop-in young people have access to the art supplies and new projects can emerge from this group. The club is funded partly by The Common Good Fund which is managed by Midlothian Council and is partly funded by our Art Club Sponsors. Anyone who lives in Dalkeith aged between 8-14 years old can drop in on Thursday nights from 6:30-8:30pm at the Marc Building, 10 Woodburn Road, Dalkeith. It's also free

We have a very exciting event coming up that members are working on. We would love to see you at our community art event organised and run by Art Club members. Please invite your friends through our Facebook Event. Young people involved will be receiving their Dynamic Youth Awards for their involvement in organising this. We hope you will join us and celebrate what young people can achieve.
