Dates of existence
Janette Grace Daly, born 13/01/1897, attended The Glasgow School of Art between 1913-1921. For the duration of this period she resided in Pollockshiels, initially in Kenmure Street, and thereafter in Melville Street. Daly spent six years as a day student at The Glasgow School of Art, and a final two attending evening classes. She studied Drawing and Painting throughout, and there is evidence that she undertook two sessions in embroidery with Miss MacBeth in 1916. She was a member of the Glasgow School of Art Club.
In January 1915 she may have helped with Stall 5 in the Belgian Market, part of the Belgium Tryst at The Glasgow School of Art. This was a two-day event with exhibitions, music and shows, organised by students to raise funds for Belgians suffering from the impact of the First World War.
In 1917-18 Daly competed against 60 others and became one of a small number of applicants to receive a Haldane Day-School Bursary of £12. She earned her Diploma in Drawing and Painting in session 1918-19, and gained a further qualification which allowed her to teach art in session 1919-20.
In 1924 Daly married fellow GSA graduate and art teacher, Frederick Craik Stewart
