Creative pathways on the Canal

On Thursday, 23rd November, I went to the Whisky Bond to attend the exhibition of sculptures by a group of 16 and 17 years olds on a "Creative Pathways Our Bright Future" programme at Impact Arts. This programme was partly funded by Scottish Canals and provided an opportunity to develop a series of works for the Clay Pits, a nature reserve on the Forth and Clyde Canal.

View of "You Are Here" which is a map of the Forth and Clyde Canal 
that goes through the Clay Pits.

This is known as "Four Shadows" and is influenced by 
four high rise flats at Westercommon.

The "Ways of Seeing" sculpture using steel and coloured Perspex has a minimal impact on the city skyline and aims to complement the wonderful view of the west end.

It was an impressive showcase providing young people with an amazing opportunity to develop their creative skills and help them move on to employment or further studies. More information available at:
