Drawing in a school workshop in the Clore Learning Centre

Roy Matthews

Your students will become artists for a day at this exhibition tour and practical sculpture workshop inspired by the work of sculptor Antony Gormley RA.

These workshops are now fully booked. Please make an enquiry to be added to our waiting list. You will be contacted if your preferred slots become available.

In small groups, students will move through the exhibition and engage in discussion about the work of contemporary sculptor Antony Gormley, as they see his work firsthand. The exhibition will explore Gormley’s wide-ranging use of organic and industrial materials over the years, including iron, steel, lead, seawater and clay. Students will explore this wide-ranging exhibition and the large-scale installations, becoming aware of their own bodies, in and as part of space.

As well as newly reconfigured sculptures, your students will discover a selection of Gormley’s pocket sketchbooks and drawings. They will encounter rarely-seen smaller-scale early works from the 1970s and 1980s, some of which led to Gormley using his own body as a tool to create work.

Inspired by the exhibition, students will return to the purpose-built Clore Learning Centre to create their own sculptural responses to the exhibition to take back to school.

All our creative workshops are led by practicing artists and supported by specially trained DBS-checked volunteers.
