Stevenson Delighted As Macduff Pupils’ Homecoming Artwork Comes To Holyrood

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has praised the quality and variety of artwork created by school pupils in all of Aberdeenshire’s schools after a large selection was brought to the Scottish Parliament for display. Children were asked to create a piece of art that had been inspired by the ideas behind Homecoming and pupils’ local areas and have been displayed in locations across Aberdeenshire.

Those pieces of art that are not currently on display in the Scottish Parliament are shown on tv screens accompanying the exhibition.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I know that I and everyone else that has seen the art on display has been extremely impressed by both the quality of what has been produced and the sheer variety of ways in which the idea of Homecoming has been interpreted.

“I am sure that pupils across Aberdeenshire, not to mention their parents, will be extremely proud that their artwork has gone on display in so many locations and has now been brought to the Scottish Parliament for people here to enjoy.

“What is striking is that whether it is fishing vessels returning to their home port with their catch or local wildlife that also call the area home, they clearly show an idea of Homecoming that uniquely reflects life in Macduff.

“I was delighted to be able to host a reception as part of their visit and have been extremely impressed by what the project has produced”.
