Wester Hailes Adult Art Group

Wester Hailes Art Group comes together once a month for trips led by Edinburgh Art Festival Community Engagement, the group comprises of local residents associated with WHALE Arts and people living in the South West of Edinburgh. The outings take into account the group’s knowledge and interests in historic and modern art, and introduces them to contemporary art practice through exhibitions, meeting artists and specialists, and trying out new artistic techniques. As well as this the trips include appreciating the city’s walking routes and green spaces and visiting other Scottish cultural destinations.
