Air Iomlaid (On Exchange) is an ambitious education project involving 60 primary school pupils from Tollcross Primary School, Edinburgh and Bun-sgoil Shlète, Skye. Conceived by artist Julie Brook and The Fruitmarket Gallery’s Children and Young People’s Programme Manager Johnny Gailey, following a process devised by Julie Brook, the project has involved the children in an intensive process of art tuition over 18 months.

The children have learned to draw and paint outside in their own and each other’s environments, and to work up their immediate responses in individual and collaborative drawings and paintings, poetry, film and animation. This exhibition is a celebration of the project and an opportunity to present the children’s work.

Supported by The National Lottery via The Scottish Arts Council’s Inspire Fund with additional funding from Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Scottish Natural Heritage, Learning and Teaching
