Working For Progress with Peter Jones

Joining us today is artist Peter Jones. Peter has had a studio based in Tribe for many years now and works mainly in watercolour. Peter’s interests include buildings and place and has published a series of books that celebrate the built environments of Kirkcudbright, Portobello, Falkland, and most recently Craigmillar & Niddrie.

Through funding from creative scotland, Peter recently collaborated with Craigmillar Art Club to launch a book and an exhibition as part of Art Walk Porty. Facilitating workshops formed a part of this project and workshops have now become a key element of his creative practice, with a series of sketching workshops at the National Museum of Scotland with Bipolar Edinburgh now into its second run. Everyone can draw, and coming together in a group can add to the wellbeing benefits of this mindful activity.
