THE ARTISTIC IMAGINATION of young people in Moray will be captured and nurtured towards a successful future if the plans of a Moray arts group are successful.

MC3: Creative Space is pioneering a programme that also hopes to help recent graduates to find their way into the creative industries.

A series of classes is being launched next month at their Elgin studios that project leader Charis Edward-Wells hopes will encourage more people to see that the can make a living from their own skills.

The programme will include classes in life-drawing and use of charcoal, pencil and paint. There will also be a craft club through the October holiday when children aged from eight to 12-years-old will be able to learn how to knit, crochet or make their own jewellery.

Charis explained: “These will be fun activities for young people to become involved in and it can also boost their self-confidence if they struggle with school or sports.”
