Find out more about Drawing Room, what we do, and our relationship with studio provider Tannery Arts.
Tannery Arts is a small, independent charity concerned with supporting the professional development of emerging and established artists through the provision of affordable studios, promoting their practice through opportunities to exhibit work, develop projects, generate partnerships with local authorities, private property owners and social housing organisations as well as engage in learning activities.
We shape projects alongside artists, children, schools, families, teachers, young people, students, adults and local community groups to explore drawing in all its forms. Drawing is used as a means to play, experiment, communicate, collaborate and come together in a process of collective learning.
ROCK PAPER SCISSORS puts children at the centre and explores with them, their teachers, schools and families, what drawing can be.
The series of Drawing Acts projects responds to the exhibition programme, bringing new perspectives to the themes of the show.
Drawing Room’s Learning Team develops one-off projects, workshops and courses tailored to specific groups.
Find all the resources that have been produced as part of our Learning Programme here. Download our children’s ROCK PAPER SCISSORS activity sheets that were published over lockdown. Each PDF connects artists, schools and families through drawing, with activities suitable for the home.
