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).

Sculptors to Your School – Outreach Program
Term 4, 2020

While we are not 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 2020!

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 would be 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 Managers.

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.

What to expect:

  • Each workshop 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 each student’s 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.

Workshop Details:

Workshops will begin to take place during Term 4, commencing in the first week of November 2020, 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.
