Last week we continued our Artist Studies series and celebrated Black History Month, by studying Scottish and Ghanian artist Maud Sulter.  Born in Glasgow, Sulter was an award-winning poet, playwright, writer, artist and photographer.  The particular works we looked at for inspiration were Sulter’s beautiful, abstract photomontages, often showing historical black women as ancient muses, telling their tales lost to time.

The children were inspired by the artist’s work to use everyday images cut from magazines and newspapers, in a surreal way – putting a fantasy on paper and helping them lose the idea that their image must ‘make-sense’ in their composition.

The Broomy’s Bairns Art Classes are every Wednesday at the Broomhill Art Flat, with the first session starting at 3.30pm, until 4.30pm, then the next session starting at 4.40pm, and finished up at 5.30pm.

If you would like to register your interest for a child to attend the Broomy’s Bairns workshops, please call RIG Arts on 01475 649359 or email
