Summer Courses & Workshops at Dundee Contemporary Arts

Spend the summer learning something new!

Our new Get Creative programme is jam-packed with opportunities to spend time in our sunny Print Studio. From taster sessions and one-day workshops to evening classes and weekend courses, we’ve got something to fit into your summer schedule.

We’ve expanded our Adobe Premiere Pro course to cover filming footage as well as editing it, so you can enjoy shooting out and about in the Scottish sun and then learn how to assemble your shots into a finished film. We’re also bringing back some popular courses that we haven’t run in a while – expand your printmaking knowledge with the return of Waterless Plate Lithography and Electro Etching.
