‘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.
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.
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.
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.
