DragonJune McEwan, as a professional artist, has extensive experience of providing art workshops for children and adults of all abilities. She believes that you don't have to be "good at art" to participate in and benefit from creative expression. The vast majority of people attending June's sessions have given overwhelmingly positive feedback, and become more confident about their own abilities and potential. Having something to take home is a bonus.

June graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee and has exhibited throughout Scotland. She has worked in many of the schools in Perth and Kinross and has created art projects with clients including Historic Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, Perth & Kinross Council, Stirling District Council, The Vivat Trust, Youth Enquiry Service, Perth & Kinross Community Arts, Perth & Kinross Community Education, YMCA, MSEEF, SPCPA, New Community Schools, and various other community groups.
