Artsmark at YSP

Yorkshire Sculpture Park is proud to be supporting schools and colleges on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience, and participate in great arts and culture.

Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools and education settings, awarded by Arts Council England, recognising their commitment to high quality arts and cultural education.

YSP currently offers schools and colleges who are working towards, or currently hold an Artsmark Award, the following opportunities:

Artsmark Phone Consultation

YSP’s Formal Learning Programmer is available for an initial phone consultation to discuss how our offer for teachers and schools can align with both your school development plan and Artsmark statement of commitment, plus highlight how potential areas of our collection can support your curriculum design.  Please email Formal Learning Programmer, Kathryn Brame, to schedule your consultation.

Facilitated Activities

We have a wide programme of events and artist led-workshops that give children and young people inspiration and insight into the arts through specialist art skills, exclusive access to curators and resident artists, alongside self-guided opportunities to enrich your Artsmark journey. We specialise in opportunities for children and young people to respond creatively, share ideas and understanding.

Our workshops are suitable for Foundation Stage, KS1 – KS5 and Further and Higher Education groups.
