Susan's Art Club is guaranteed to be FUN, CREATIVE & FRIENDLY... a place to meet new people and try new things!

Susan's Art Club is held from 3.45-5.15pm in two locations in Edinburgh: the spacious hall of St Catherine's Argyle, Grange Road on Mondays & Thursdays, and the bright main hall of Murrayfield Church Centre, 2b Ormidale Terrace on Tuesdays.

Through an exciting mix of creative projects children, who are in P4-P7, are encouraged to stretch their abilities and express individual ideas using a wide variety of different media:

Drawing: Pencils, oil and chalk pastels, charcoal, aquarelle pencils, Indian ink, making sketchbooks.

Painting: Watercolours, acrylic and tempera paints, on paper, canvas and board - portraits, abstract and still life paintings, collage.

Applied Arts: Ceramics - pottery & sculptural projects, clay work is always bisque fired and painted, occasionally glazed in a further firing, ceramic tile mosaics, jewellery-making, glass-fusing, copper engraving.

Sculpture: Models created using papier-mache, clay and wire.

Graphic design projects: illustration, lettering, greetings cards.

The club is run by Susan Dalgleish who studied at Edinburgh College of Art where she gained an Honours Degree and Postgraduate Diploma in Art & Design.
Since then Susan has been a practising Artist running a successful business from her own studio in Morningside.

After teaching an art club in school for 6 years and having run Susan's Art Club successfully for the past 11 years Susan has gained valuable experience in communicating with children in this age group. She has observed that their artistic skill improves with encouragement and practice, while self-confidence grows as new skills are developed.

A mother comments: “He is confident, inspired, calm, after Art Club ...he is proud of what he has made ...it’s good ...his self-esteem is noticeably improved.”
