Room 13 in Duror Primary School, Argyll, takes the form of after school art sessions run by volunteer Artist in Residence Katy Spong.

With just 15 pupils, Duror Primary does not have space for a dedicated studio.  Instead, one of the school’s two classrooms is transformed into a studio after school. Duror Primary School shares their Head Teacher with Glencoe Primary School in the neighbouring village.  News of the Room 13 project spread from one school to the other, and it wasn’t long before they agreed to share their Artist in Residence as well! Room 13 runs after school in alternate six-week blocks in Duror and Glencoe Primary Schools.
