Family Art Days

Family art dayThe focus of the family art day at our art studio at Ballochruin Farm near Loch Lomond National Park is to have an enjoyable and creative family experience. The family art days are aimed to work with a variety of materials and techniques, such as drawing, painting, collage and mixed media. Ewen Duncan, Artist and Art Lecturer will discuss ideas and inspirations, and demonstrate how to work with different media. A family art day is a great way to spend a fun-filled creative day together.

This is the perfect short break with activities for the whole family.
Our family art days or weekends cater for the age range from 3 to 80+ and accommodation can be booked on site as well! Invite grandparents, aunties and uncles for a creative short break and have a fun family art day with the whole family.

Family Art Day with EwenAll art materials will be provided as well as protective t’shirts during the family art day. This is a unique experience for families and children to work in an artist environment using artist paint and drawing materials. During the family art day you can play with art materials without worrying about your nice flooring or carpet. Being messy is welcome and part of the family art day experience.

The studio is located in the converted Byre of the Farm. The Farm is well known for there beautiful Alpaca herds. After the art course you might have the opportunity to join in with the routine care of the alpacas or use them as image for your drawing and paintings. A fun family day out!
