Aberdeen’s popular street-art festival, Nuart, is giving students the opportunity to explore their creativity in special workshops.
Robert Gordon University (RGU) and North East Scotland College (NESCOL) students will have the chance to work with artists involved in Nuart during the festival.
For its second year, the festival will showcase the work of local, national and international artists on the granite city’s walls.
During the event, which takes place from April 12 to 15, street artists will put together creative workshops with students from NESCOL and RGU’s Gray’s School of Art.
Glasgow-based artist Ciaran Glöbel is to host a sign painting workshop at NESCOL’s main studio on April 14, to introduce the students to hand-painting craft techniques.
Elki, who works from photographs as his source material and is also taking part in the festival, will teach the students how to create and cut their own stencils, before they add their work to the cityscape.
Elaine Makein, faculty manager for Creative Industries at NESCOL, said: “The Nuart Aberdeen street art festival really caught everyone’s attention during its first outing last year and to be associated with the programme this year through our new partnership will be of huge benefit to our students.”
