The Scottish Collection: Shared Reading and Creative Writing

Scottish National Gallery Clore Education Centre
  • Wednesday, 29 January, 10.30am-12.30pm


In this session we will explore artworks from the Scottish Collection through creative writing and shared reading. Delivered by the reading charity Open Book who organise events across the country, promoting creative writing and shared reading, collaboratively we will look at and respond to William Bell Scott’s painting, Una and the Lion. If you like, you can share your writing from the session with the group and the organisers, your impressions and responses feeding into the interpretation of the Scottish collection.

This event is part of the Celebrating Scotland's Art Project.
