Schools / Young People

Highland Print Studio works with schools, youth and community groups across the region, both in the Studio and on an outreach basis, and including both primary (aged 7+) and secondary schools. Activities provided can range from taster sessions to large-scale projects lasting over several months. Projects are often based around a theme and have included cross-curricular projects, using creative learning to teach subjects such as history, geography and science.

Highland Print Studio also works with young people who are struggling with or disengaged from learning. Feedback from teachers underlines the positive impact that participation in creative learning has on the young people’s confidence, communication and engagement. This is particularly noticeable when the activity takes place in the Studio. The experience of working in a different environment, a professional working studio, with other Studio users, seems to be very effective at helping young people to engage and learn.

Highland Print Studio is a project partner with Highland Youth Arts Hub, and also registered as a Third Sector creative provider within the Highland Council area. If you are developing ideas for a school, youth or community group you are involved with, please contact the Studio and we will be happy to discuss with you how we might be able to help.
