Art Forms

What art forms are covered by the Scottish Artists Union?


In general the Scottish Artists Union uses the terms 'visual artist' and 'applied artist' to indicate: painters, sculptors, multi media artists, new media artists, printers, lens based artists, photographers, audio artists, performance artists, ceramicists, jewellers, weavers, textile artists, creative metal workers, glass artists, furniture designers, wood carvers & turners, illustrators, cartoonists, graphic artists and multi media designers. Also artists working in public space and educational and social arenas.

We do not represent technicians, theatrical performers (other than 'performance' artists), writers or musicians. All of these groups are supported by other unions.

If your practice falls outside these descriptions then please contact [email protected] to discuss whether or not we will be able to offer support in your particular working environment.
