Making It - artist led workshops
These bespoke school-based workshops provide pupils with a means to engage directly with a professional sculptor. With the emphasis on making 3D work, pupils develop new skills through being encouraged to explore a variety of media and techniques to create their sculptures. This form of applied experience provides students with an engaging and inspiring addition to their course of study.
For teachers, working alongside a professional artist expands their vocabulary and skills, both academically and technically, and importantly provides a sustainable means for the continued enhanced provision of sculpture tuition in schools.
“It was fantastic to collaborate with an artist combining ideas and coming up with a new project. Working with a sculptor has made me more confident in my 3D teaching (I am a printmaker). The sculptor, Julia Vance, was a very inspiring and kind person, who taught with passion and integrity. The day reinvigorated my passion for teaching sculpture and gave me ideas for a project to design for KS4.”
Head of Art, Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School
Mini Making It - RBS educator led workshops
Catering for the 11—16 age group (KS3 & GCSE) these practical gallery based sculpture workshops would provide students with a means to engage directly with contemporary sculpture in all its many guises. These half-day sessions would aim to deepen the students understanding and appreciation of the art form through guided discussion, sketching, and a making activity, utilizing techniques and carefully chosen materials which mimic a sculpture in the current exhibition.
