Drop in for free family fun at Yorkshire Sculpture Park this Easter

14 Mar 2017

Bring the family to Yorkshire Sculpture Park this Easter for the perfect day out, full of exciting art, great events and stunning landscape.
 
Drop in with the kids and Make Yourself at Home (9–11 & 14–18 April / 11.00–16.00 / Free / Aimed at all ages) in our free studio space for families. Draw, create a collage or make your own sculpture inspired by [Re]construct (1 April–25 June 2017) an exhibition, largely selected from the Arts Council Collection, which highlights the close and complex relationship between sculpture and architecture.
 
Step into a Rainbow (12 & 13 April / 12.00–16.00 / Free / Aimed at all ages) at Longside Gallery for a vibrant and playful drop-in workshop exploring the colourful and mind-bending paintings and sculptures in Kaleidoscope: Colour & Sequence in 1960s British Art (1 April–18 June 2017).
 
Roll up, roll up for some art making, art thinking, and art playing, with The ARTcart (13 & 20 April / 11.00–16.00 / Free / Aimed at all ages). Create your own art power super cape, design a flag of rights, or follow the art and nature trail, all inspired by a brand-new artwork by Bob and Roberta Smith.
 
Immerse yourself in the imaginative world of sculpture making in Outdoor Sculpture Building: Come Rain, Come Shine (11 & 18 March / 11.00–12.00 & 13.30–14.30 / £3 / Aimed at all ages). Work and play together to build sculptures inspired by artists in the Park.

See mind-boggling sculptures made from dice, glass, stainless steel and bronze in the biggest UK exhibition to date by leading artist Tony Cragg. A Rare Category of Objects runs in the Underground Gallery, Garden Gallery and open air until 3 September. Also, see a collection of photographer Anne Purkiss’ portraits of sculptors, all of whom have exhibited at YSP over the last 40 years, in the YSP Centre Upper Space until 4 June.
 
Don’t forget to visit YSP Shop for exclusive exhibition merchandise and a distinctive selection of products form international artists, contemporary designers and talented makers. Then grab a bite to eat at YSP Restaurant with delicious locally sourced, seasonal food and stunning views of the Henry Moore bronzes in the Country Park.
