Schools Workshop: Sculpture

  • Sat Nov 30 2019 - Fri Dec 20 2019 10:00 AM - 02:00 PM

These workshops are developed specifically for key stage 1, 2, 3 or 4 pupils. Taking inspiration from the exhibitions ‘Bharti Kher. A Wonderful Anarchy’ and ‘David Smith. Field Work’ the workshop encourages children to look at ways of responding to art through observation, discussion and making. The session will involve an interactive gallery tour that focuses on exploring sculptural concepts. After the tour pupils will have the opportunity to experiment in small groups, creating their own large-scale constructions.  The workshop aims to broaden students’ sculptural vocabulary and to develop imaginative thinking, construction and design skills, problem-solving and team-work. Students should bring a sketchbook, pencil and a collection of materials that they have gathered to use for their challenge (for example, man-made forms such as boxes, packaging, fabric and natural forms such as wood, leaves, sand etc). They are also required to bring a packed lunch and suitable clothing for creative work. The sessions are available on Tuesday – Friday from October – December 2019, 10 am – 2 pm, subject to availability. There is a maximum of 30 places available per workshop, and the cost is £6 per child. All children should be accompanied by teaching staff.
