RAPS has always been a keen supporter of POW! Thanet who are gearing up for their 2021 online festival on the 5-8th March to celebrate International Women's Day and would love for you and your children to be involved!
Our POW! Inspired Windows project is simple to take part in and can be done at home or at school. With your help we will create a Thanet-wide art gallery exhibiting your artwork!
HOW TO TAKE PART
- Choose an inspirational woman to you - it can be anyone, past or present, well known or known only to you. Will it be Greta Thunberg? Maya Angelou? Your mum? We can't wait to find out!
- Draw your chosen woman onto an A4 sheet of paper with the title 'POW! Inspired Windows' or onto the printable A4 frame attached.
- Add a little information about your chosen woman and why you chose her (don't let this bit stop you from taking part! Just the name of the person will do)
- Display your drawings in your front window at home or at school.
- Take a photograph of your drawing and share to your to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #powthanetwindows and tag @powthanet
Your artwork will be part of the POW! Festival by filling the windows of Thanet with inspirational women. Be sure to tag us in your social media posts so that we can share as many of your artworks as possible on POW! social media to create a digital gallery too! A couple of examples, resources and optional frame are attached to this email.
We understand that teachers, students and families are under a lot of pressure and we hope to bring a little joy and inspiration into everyone's lives this POW! Festival 2021. Art and creativity are especially important in these difficult times and this project has been designed to be simple, safe and free so everyone can take part. We hope you find this an easy way to add to your school’s SMSC curriculum, be an access point to 'cultural capital' and feed into your celebrations of International Women’s Day.
