For those of you who have attended workshops here led by Cynthia Scoville you might like to know that after 10 years of extraordinary service she has chosen to leave the RBS to nurture her own creativity. The RBS would like to thank Cynthia for her unwavering commitment and hard work, volunteering her time to devise and lead 100’s of workshops which introduced local school children to the art and practice of sculpture. She has been a wonderful asset to the RBS team and an inspiring advocate of the arts in education and although she will be greatly missed, we wish her all the very best with her future endeavours.
Prompted by this change along with the instatement of the new Director, Caroline Worthington, we will be pausing the education workshops (apart from those previously booked) to assess how we want to develop and grow the programme to suit the needs of teachers and students. We are inviting professionals from a range of schools on Monday 26th June from 4.30 - 6.30pm for a free two hour session in our unique gallery space in South Kensington. The event will begin with a curated tour of the current diverse Bursary exhibition showing the work of 10 emerging talents, followed by a practical making session to get the creative juices flowing, and finally a group discussion (over a glass of wine) to toss ideas around. More information about the event can be viewed here. If you would like to attend please email Julie Beech firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 020 7373 8615.
We look forward to publishing our new education programme later this year and welcoming you to take part once again.
Meanwhile free group visits can be arranged to our gallery in South Kensington. Please see our current exhibition programme for further details.
