Opportunities for educators
Art education is an integral part of the Learning offer at YSP. We provide annual opportunities for educators to develop their own creative practice and art education approaches in our unique setting. Join us to find inspiration in our regular series of CPD events for educators and teaching professionals. Develop new skills and enhance your confidence in exploring contemporary art with learners.
Discover new ideas for outdoor learning in support of art education and develop knowledge for teaching creative processes. We work closely with Yorkshire Sculpture International and the Arts Council Collection to help education professionals network with peers across the sector to develop a broad and balanced curriculum.
Whole Staff Training
We can provide training days for groups of education staff at YSP, tailored to your needs and led by our staff and professional artists. For more information please email our Learning Programme Coordinator at email@example.com.
Initial Teacher Training
Our artist-led sessions [link to page] can be adapted for students on Initial Teacher Training and PGCE courses. Our artist educators model ways of exploring art in the outdoors for both Primary and Secondary teaching. The sessions enable students to reflect on creative learning strategies through direct experience of an artist-led workshop.
Events for teachers
Special exhibition previews, teacher study days and networking events are programmed throughout the year. If you are interested in bespoke sessions for teaching professionals, please email our Learning Programme Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org

Opportunities for Educators
Sculpture Adventures for under 5s–Make, play and discover intriguing sculpture together. Sculpture Adventures is held on the last Thursday of every month (April–October) and every Saturday during school holidays.
On Queer Ground–Rural environments are frequently seen as existing in opposition to queerness, with urban spaces typically being more accepting places for LGBTQIA+ people. This exhibition looks at ways in which queer artists are re-connecting with the landscapes around them by mapping and navigating their queer identity within these places, and disrupting traditional or prescribed ways of looking and understanding.
Family LOVE Walk–Together, explore love, acceptance and belonging while noticing and connecting to the natural world. The session will be led by imaginative artists who will help you to discover your creativity in new ways, creating art and nature filled family memories to treasure.
