Resident Artist for the Day

Running an event? Want an artist to set up shop and talk to people about art and making art?

I’ll bring a Drawing Board and Framed Art, Sketchbooks and other materials (subject to the space you have available or want to fill) and work on site throughout the day, or across a number of days). I can work to a theme or around a subject, or simply fill page after page of my sketchbooks whilst discussing your event or art/artist related content with your visitors. I can do short demos and answer questions about how I make the images I make, these can be suited to all ages groups/demographics.

Family Event Day Classic

Basically me in a space provided by you, encouraging adults and/or kids(of all ages) to draw and have fun drawing…

I’ll supply the rolls of paper and some drawing materials, you supply the tables and chairs.

The space usually acts as a rest point for adults and kids alike who need a place to chill-out and escape the manic nature of the rest of the event, its a great opportunity for me to talk to parents and families about what it means to work in the arts and what it might mean for that child in their family who loves creating above all else.
