Join Our Art Community

Wed, 29th Jun 2022

We have been collaborating with artists to present accessible art lessons online!

The Better Lives Partnership has been working with our resident artist, mentor, and educator, Bea Last, to create an online art community which provides accessible videos to enable the exploration of different art practices.

Six brilliant local artists are involved in this project: Bea Last, Rory Laycock, Morag Macpherson, Frank Hayes, Diana Hamilton, and Jan Hogarth.

Each artist has made two videos, and each video is a self-contained art lesson that is accessible to those with little or no experience in the subject matter. There are clear instructions to go along with pictures, as well as closed captions on the videos. These videos are available on the Better Lives YouTube Channel and you can find them here:

If you would like to be a part of our online art community, you can join our dedicated team site here:

And if you would like to pick up an art pack to provide you with materials that will be used in the videos, you can do so in the application. Packs can be picked up from our Dumfries, Castle Douglas, and Stranraer sites, or if you request it we can have them posted out to you.

This project was funded by Dumfries and Galloway Council through the Regional Art Fund and DG Unlimited.
