‘Sculptors to Schools’ is an exciting suite of programs that has emerged from the unforeseen events and restrictions of COVID-19. We are offering 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, Artist in Residence Programs and Professional Development Workshops.

The program provides a unique opportunity for students, offering sculpture making workshops at their schools. 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.

What to expect

  • Each program will include an introduction to the Artist and their practice.
  • Students and teachers can expect a workshop that expands the ideas of the Artist’s work into a practical art-making workshop to develop the understanding of three-dimensional creative practice through discussion, demonstration, and sculpture-making activity.
  • Curriculum links are tailored to the year group and emphasise STEAM through discussion, material, and creative concepts.


The workshops with artists are carefully designed in collaboration with teachers to meet the needs and interests of students. This includes a workshop outline, materials, techniques to explore, artist information resources and links with key learning areas for Stages 1-6 in accordance with NSW Education Standard Outcomes.

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. They provide unique opportunities to meet and work with exhibiting Artists.

Artist in Residence Programs

Artists who have exhibited in Sculpture by the Sea and educators come  to classrooms and conduct 3-6 week programs with individual workshops over the period. Delving  in greater detail into the artist’s practice and processes, this expanded  program reinforces learning experiences and provides a valuable, in- depth experience with an artist in residence at the school, including the  production of a collaborative, large scale sculpture with students and an optional exhibition of the residency on the school premises.

Professional Development Workshops

In collaboration with artists and teachers, for teachers. A unique  opportunity for teachers to meet Sculpture by the Sea artists, speak  with and train to provide rich, engaging, and well-structured learning  experiences about contemporary art and sculpture.

This short course may be used as Elective PD to contribute toward  ongoing professional learning in accordance with the Australian  Professional Standards for Teachers and will be available once per Term.

  • Targets priority areas in delivery and assessment of NSW curriculum
  • Links with key learning areas and various outcomes for Stage 1 – 6 aged students in accordance with NSW Education Standard Outcomes
  • Integrated approach to STEAM and cross-disciplinary critical thinking
