Drawing in the Air

Drawing in the Air

Children in Lochaber will gain an opportunity to learn about the environment around them in new and interesting ways, with this new project led by artist Ali Berardelli for Room 13.

The project will engage art and ecology to explore two forest environments; Outlandia; the treehouse studio and artist-led space high in the hill top forest of Glen Nevis, and at the Forest School at Arkaig Community Forest.

Participants from schools and community groups will visit these locations and create their own ariel imagery through drawing and sound based explorations of the environment.

A team of supporting artists will work alongside the lead artist on this project including a photographer and drone pilot, musician and music therapist and visual artist.

Drawing in The Air gets underway on Sunday 11th June with a family event hosted by Clunes Forest School and a display of ariel photography from around the two locations.

This project is made possible with funding by The People’s Postcode Lottery and Arkaig Community Forest. Activities and historical and ecological discussion will be provided by local artists, Forestry Commission Scotland Ranger and the John Muir Trust Manager.
