PLACES are still available on a one-day art workshop at Geilston Garden in Cardross this Saturday, May 18.

Artist Carol Moore will lead the ‘Pastels En Plein Air’ workshop between 10am and 4pm.

Carol studied at the Glasgow School of Art, where she won a self-portrait prize in her first year as a student, and later rented a studio in the city for ten years with WASPS (Workshop and Artists Studio Spaces Scotland) in Glasgow until a studio was built for her in Balloch.

And Carol still works in Balloch today, while also tutoring adult learners in drawing and painting in group classes held in Balloch and Helensburgh.

Carol, who specialises in still life paintings, landscapes, and narrative works with figures and animals, has exhibited widely throughout the UK, especially Scotland, and has had the opportunity to exhibit in Germany, while her work also features in private collections in the USA and Australia.

This Saturday’s workshop is the latest in a busy programme of events at Geilston organised by the National Trust for Scotland and the Friends of Geilston volunteer group.
