Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Trust is looking for freelance artist practitioners with an interest and experience in architectural drawing to lead workshops for schools, families and young people at Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery. We are seeking confident practitioners who have a strong understanding of the connections and links between art and architecture as well as experience in developing learning activities for primary and secondary school-aged children. We are particularly interested in artist practitioners with experience of working in a SEND setting who value inclusivity and creativity for all.
This role will involve working with the Engagement team at Pitzhanger to devise and deliver workshops inspired by exhibitions in our Gallery, currently displaying Rana Begum: Dappled Light. You will plan and deliver your own inspiring, hands-on sessions that allow children and young people to learn more about contemporary art, architecture and to encourage creativity and self-expression, as well as be inspired by the neoclassical architecture of Sir John Soane. You will facilitate exciting collaborative challenges that allow children and young people to learn key skills such as technical drawing and model-making, while gaining a better understanding of key issues in the sector such as sustainability and space.
Practitioners must hold an enhanced DBS and will be required to complete risk assessments in advance of workshops and post session evaluation.
