From September to December 2006, the professional team carried out a residency in each school, supporting and mentoring the pupils during the creation of their new work. This was interspersed with workshops and visits to the National Galleries of Scotland.

The artists used their knowledge and technical expertise to guide the pupils through the rehearsal process. During the residency, pupils worked collaboratively, expanding their artistic skills and applying them to the creation of a piece of performance or visual art.
