Through the Window Open Call
CAW presents a project idea from the Head of our Young People’s Department, Nellie Shevelkina, to do while at home during the shutdown. We are seeking submissions for a celebratory, unjuried exhibition of works resulting from this community prompt.
Through the Window Prompt
Confined to our homes, we are all experiencing a unique way of life in this current moment. This new time at home can be used to engage and explore our creative natures. While we are all staying in, the Natural world is coming to life around us. Observing Spring through the window may give a sense of hope and inspiration during this uncertain time.
CAW invites anyone of all ages to make a drawing, painting, collage or other art piece by working from the view through your window. You can use the window pane as your viewfinder or compositional frame, or include the window in your piece. Nellie recommends cutting the paper or surface to the size and shape of your window. Works in any medium are welcome. We encourage parents and guardians to do this project with their children who are home from school as a creative break from other activities. CAW would like to host an exhibition of all works as soon as CAW reopens to celebrate getting through this unprecedented time together. This call is open to anyone in our community at large—no previous relationship to CAW is needed to participate.
To share pictures of your work with CAW while in progress or from home, you can post an image with the hashtag #CAWthroughthewindow and tag us @creativeartsworkshop on Instagram or Facebook.
Exhibition Dates: TBD, CAW would like to host an in-person exhibition as soon as CAW reopens to celebrate getting through this unprecedented time together.
Submission Deadline: Rolling, submission deadline will be set as soon as decision to reopen has been made.
Drop Off: Once CAW reopens, we will be able to set drop off dates prior to the show installation.
Submission Form: Please fill out and enclose the submission form with your piece.
