About the Exhibition 

Made at MAC: Painting with Colour (Inspired by the Scottish Colourists) showcases recent artwork created by the highly talented students who attend Practical Visual Enquiry and Art in Context courses at MAC, taught by professional artist tutor Helen Tarr.

During Autumn 2019, students were inspired by Helen’s project 'The Scottish Colourists; Creating Impact with Colour' immersing themselves in an artistic exploration of colour, line and form - across landscape, portrait and still-life genres.
