The Why?s Man

"My art is place specific and people specific." George Wyllie

Back to The George Wyllie Education Initiative in Schools


The Advanced Higher Art & Design class at Strathaven Academy, South Lanarkshire investigated George Wyllie's work and worked on designs for a paper boat to go into the exhibition at The Mitchell.

Each pupil chose a different aspect of Wyllie's work and created a panel for their boat, which is about 2m long and 1.5m high.

The AH Art & Design class at Strathaven Academy also spent time at the exhibition, and then scripted and recorded the audio guide.
