‘The workshops empowered students to look- understand and transfer those skills to the visual world around them’

Teacher, Horizon Community College Barnsley

Viewpoint Tours


Suitable for: KS5 and above
1.5-hour session 10.00–11.30 / 12.30–14.00 (timings flexible)
Cost: £115 +VAT

This outdoor, artist-led tour takes students through the Park, enabling them to respond to sculpture and the natural environment through discussion and shared thinking around the artworks; developing visual literacy and critical thinking skills. Viewpoint Tours are an opportunity for students to find ways of questioning and sharing ideas about art works in a personalised way; finding ways of looking at and interpreting art with greater confidence. Lead artists share their knowledge and understanding of our modern and contemporary sculptures, whilst guiding learners to find their own interpretations. 
 
Students are invited to bring their own sketchbooks on the tour and lead artists encourage students to use drawing to record observations and ideas. Pencils and clipboards can be provided. All tours are led by practising artists.

The ‘Exploring Photography’ workshop is available to groups of up to 20 students. It introduces students to a range of technical and experimental approaches to photography, using the camera as a creative tool to explore and investigate ideas in response to the landscape and artwork at YSP. The workshop encourages critical thinking, confidence in personal ideas and promotes ways in which ideas can be explored and extended. Opportunities for personal and group reflection are included throughout and students are introduced to a range of photographers to support and inspire practical activity.  

The workshop is led by an artist with a photography practice and can be adapted to develop students’ personal work in response to particular themes currently being explored through AS or A level courses of study.

Surreal Structures


Suitable for: KS5
Full day: 10.00–14.30 (inc. 30-min lunch, timings flexible)
Cost: £250 +VAT  

In the morning, explore sculptures in the Park through discussion and artist-led drawing and making activities, looking specifically at sculptures which connect to ideas of buildings and architecture, structures, construction and scale. The morning is focused on finding inspiration from sculptures and the work of other artists, developing ideas and experimentation. 
 
In the afternoon, students have the opportunity to extend their understanding of 3D form, structure and balance, creating sculptures which could be maquettes for imagined sculptures or fantastical pieces of architecture. The afternoon session is an indoor workshop and students work in small groups to produce a sculpture to take back to school with them, using scrap materials and mod-roc plaster.
