Learning Programme 2017
Fourteen art students from six Scottish art colleges have been selected for the Professional Development Programme as part of the Scotland + Venice 2017 presentation of a solo show of new work by Rachel Maclean.
The Scotland + Venice Professional Development Programme began fourteen years ago in 2003. Since then, the programme has provided the opportunity for over eighty students from eight colleges to spend time in Venice alongside like-minded artists, experiencing the distinctive setting of Venice and expanding their own practice.
