If Sculpture by the Sea is permitted to go ahead, we will not be conducting our usual School Program. However, schools will be welcome to visit in compliance with the protocols that are advised by NSW Health. (This is not to imply that we have been given approval for the exhibition yet, but we are hopeful).
While we may not be able to offer our sculpture making workshops with artists at the exhibition this year, the School Education Program Team at Sculpture by the Sea is thrilled to announce a new Outreach Program for 2021!
This is an exciting program that has emerged from the unforeseen events and restrictions with COVID-19 this year. We are offering for the first time the opportunity for schools and students to have Artists who have exhibited in Sculpture by the Sea and educators to come into their classrooms to conduct informative, stimulating and multi-sensory sculpture making workshops.
The program will provide a unique opportunity for students, offering sculpture making workshops at their school. Students will meet and work with an Artist and actively explore material, themes and sculpture-making skills based on the artists’ ideas, processes, and creative practice.
The workshops with artists are carefully designed in collaboration with the teachers involved to meet the needs and interests of the students. This will include a workshop outline, materials, techniques to explore and outcomes. The artists will be supported prior to and during their workshops by our School Education Program Educators.
Our workshop programs encourage participants to explore, examine and discuss a range of creative, conceptual, and artistic responses to site and landscape, form and ideas. It provides unique opportunities to meet and work with exhibiting Artists.
Workshops will begin to take place during the school term, commencing in the last week of January 2021, and are offered as a 60 – 90 minute practical experience.
Cost: $750.00 per workshop for a maximum of 30 students.
Workshop cost includes materials per student.
If your school would like to be involved, please respond with the following details to [email protected] or telephone 02 8399 0233:
We look forward to hearing from you!
