In this session, we’re going to discuss portraits that explore the relationship between humans and animals. This session will be a relaxed and informal guided tour with refreshments for anyone affected by dementia and their relatives, friends and supporters. Led by our team of friendly artists, it’s a chance to socialise, talk about artworks and enjoy art activities together.

Places are free, but limited so please book online. For more information or assistance please contact us on 0131 624 6410 or [email protected].
