Bring your class on this outdoor, artist-led, interactive walking tour to build your classes confidence in looking at and responding to contemporary sculpture at YSP. Through questioning, making and drawing, your class develops their creative and critical thinking skills and develops their sculptural vocabulary. Class-led discussion and experimentation with materials (wire, clay, card etc.) raises curiosity, and identifies lines of enquiry supporting learning about and through contemporary art.

Choose one of the following themes:
– Highlights
– Materials
– Abstraction
– Identity
– Art and the Landscape

Outdoor Sculpture Building

 

Suitable for: KS5 and Higher Education Groups
Full-day workshop: 10.00–14.30 (timings flexible)
Cost: £235 +VAT
 
This full day workshop extends the ‘Walk, Talk, Make’ interactive tour and your chosen theme (outlined above), to critically consider ‘What makes a successful sculpture?’. Alongside developing confidence in looking at and responding to contemporary sculpture, your class determines what makes a successful sculpture and considers the sculptural thinking skills needed by an artist.

In the afternoon your class puts their critical and creative thinking into action. Groups are set a ‘sculptural challenge’ based on their enquiry during the tour. Experimenting in small groups to create their own large-scale sculptural constructions, your class uses found materials, both natural and man-made, applying their newly defined criteria for success, (balance, scale, composition, light etc.). This workshop develops imaginative thinking, construction skills, such as stacking and balancing, problem-solving, team work, speaking and listening and physical engagement with large-scale making in the outdoors. Groups create their own ‘mini’ Yorkshire Sculpture Park, presenting their ideas and collectively reflecting on their classes’ sculptures. Your class develops their sculptural vocabulary and thinking whilst defining the unique challenges of sculptural making.
