Parkinson's Edinburgh Art Group (2020)
The Art Group meets weekly, every Thursday in the Botanic Cottage, situated on the north side of the Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, on Inverleith Place. Wheelchairs and mobility scooters are available at the entrance gates.
(Princess Anne visited one of the Art group sessions in December 2016 shortly after we relocated to the Botanic Cottage)
Classes run from 1.30 – 3.30 pm
The sessions are facilitated by a trained artist/illustrator. Participants can do their own thing or work according to the topic for the day. It is an opportunity for participants to share their artistic experience and to help each other. All standards are welcome. The aim is to seek enjoyment from being creative and to socialise with fellow artists but you may find you have creative skills not previously recognised.
(The Group’s latest exhibition was held in October 2019 at the popular Bon Papillon Café/Gallery, Howe Street, Edinburgh where they sold 26 items and generously donated the net proceeds of £1,029 to the Branch, a sum significantly more than in previous years and a great effort much appreciated by the Branch).
Note: we use Eventbrite to promote our activities and events. You don't need to book a ticket via Eventbrite in order to attend the Art Group.
