ROCK PAPER SCISSORS

Anna Paterson

During the Autumn term 13 primary school classes from the local area worked with artist Anna Paterson to explore the destruction and repair of paper using hole punches, pins, pencils, nails and hammers! The children gathered ephemeral material and processed it through a laminator which has culminated in a collaborative artwork installed in one of the lightboxes outside Drawing Room as part of the of ROCK PAPER SCISSORS: A Snapshot – a trail of exhibits around Drawing Room to coincide with the Drawing Biennial 2024. ! This work made by over 300 children will eventually be bound into a book and housed in our Library.

For the first Family Studio of 2024, Anna experimented with mark-making onto to kitchen towel with food colouring. These artworks were then transformed into colourful birds and used as shadow puppets!
