Drawing the Abstract

Rita Evans & Halima Akhtar

Artists Rita Evans and Halima Akhtar explore how abstract drawing can be a creative tool to encourage collaboration, confidence, and curiosity in children. ‘Journeys’ and ‘sound’ are used as starting points for imaginative drawing activities.

As part of our ROCK PAPER SCISSORS programme, the Teachers’ Assembly series seeks to break down the distinctions between artist and teacher, studio, and classroom, promoting drawing as a versatile pedagogical tool. Each event launches a new printed resource to share ideas and inspiration for teachers to keep or pin up in the staffroom!
