Sculpture by the Sea is a not for profit organisation offering free to the public outdoor sculpture exhibitions. It is a great place to bring students of all ages to view and engage with the eclectic and spectacular display of sculpture being exhibited at Cottesloe Beach.

Cottesloe Beach has paved areas surrounded by grass and shade, making it a suitable location for children to enjoy snack breaks during their visit. Please ensure that care is taken to remove all rubbish from the area. Given the outdoor nature of the exhibition, we recommend the use of sunscreen and sunhats for all students (and teachers too!). For groups travelling by bus, there is a drop-off zone on the beach-side of Marine Parade, along Cottesloe Beach. This is within easy walking distance of the exhibition


The ALCAlcoa_ColourOA School Education Program at Sculpture by the Sea aims to provide both students and teachers with an informative, stimulating out of classroom experience that will enhance the learning potential for students visiting the exhibition. Our range of Educational Programs encourages participants to explore, examine and discuss a range of creative, conceptual and artistic responses to site and landscape, form and contemporary ideas. It provides unique opportunities to meet and work with exhibiting Artists.

The ALCOA School Education Program for schools features:

  • Practical Sculpture Workshops with Exhibiting Artists
  • Exhibition Focus Tours
  • Artist Spotlight Talks
  • Teachers’ Professional Development Events
  • Online Education Resources
