Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers


Kate and Alchemy Arts would like to thank all the staff and pupils of for all the ideas and inspiration you have given for the Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers Trail. The wonderful ideas and artwork contributed by staff and pupils are now with the Edinburgh art Festival artists and designers and being made into the Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers guide and map.

From the 1st August the map and guide will be available to collect from the City Art Centre, Fruitmarket Gallery and Dovecot Studios. Families will be able to follow the guide, completing creative activities and collecting stamps along the way.  Once all the stamps have been collected, families will be able to redeem a special limited edition prize from Trinity Apse, where they will also have the chance to play an extraordinary musical art piece!

We will be launching the Map and Guide at International Play Day on Wed 31st July.  This will be the very first time the map and guide is available to the public.  We would like to invite all Tollcross staff and pupils along to collect their map and guide and to celebrate all the hard work that has gone into it.  We will also be running large scale
interactive art workshops which families can join in with.

International Play Day will take place on the Royal Mile between 12.30-4pm Wed 31 July.  The whole Royal Mile from the city Chambers to North Bridge will be taken over by exciting play activities including a giant sandpit, huge water play area, magic potion making and the Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers art zone.

Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers can be found in the quadrangle of the City Chambers and will be creating some weird and wonderful art works.
We hope to see you there!

P6/7 gave a stunning performance of their Scottish Play today at our school assembly. Pupils worked collaboratively  to created the play and performed to a packed auditorium. There were elements of  tragedy, suspense and comedy. We all enjoyed it very much, especially the battle scene. Thank you P6/7, The Oscars await you in the future !
