posted 19 Apr 2010, 18:48 by David Rintoul

This exhibition is the culmination of The Fruitmarket Gallery’s 18-month long education project, funded through the Scottish Arts Council Inspire Fund, which has linked children from Tollcross Primary School in Edinburgh with children from Bun-sgoil Shleite on the Isle of Skye.

The pupils have been developing their skills in looking at and responding to their local environments through language and visual art.

They have been taking part in an intensive programme of drawing and painting in the outdoors with a team of professional artists led by Julie Brook.

Working on home ground, and also on exchange visits to Edinburgh and Skye, the children have formed creative partnerships maintained through internet blogs between the schools.

This exhibition will tour to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Skye 5th June – 25th July 2010

The exhibition runs at the Fruitmarket Gallery until the 9th May, 2010.
