Drawing Room is excited to invite artists to lead on projects as part of ROCK PAPER SCISSORS 2020-21.

ROCK PAPER SCISSORS is a core part of our engagement programme which puts children at the centre and explores with them, their teachers, schools and families what drawing can be. We are seeking a dynamic range of artists to deliver after school clubs, in-school collaborations, teachers’ assemblies, family studio sessions and holiday projects - all encouraging risk, experimentation and child-led learning through drawing. We are open to artists who use drawing in its broad and cross disciplinary forms.

Artists should apply that:

  • Have a committed personal practice
  • Use drawing, in its various and expanded forms, as part of their work
  • Have experience working with communities or in educational settings
  • Would value working alongside primary aged children
  • Can relate to the diverse local community of Elephant and Castle
  • Are keen to engage critically and push the parameters of how drawing can be used
  • Are available on the dates of the virtual studio visits

We are particularly keen to receive interest from local artists, people of colour, and those currently underrepresented in the arts.

Download the application pack below for more details and instructions for submission.

We look forward to receiving your expressions of interest!

Deadline: Midnight 8th November
