Secondary students in a practical workshop

Justine Trickett

Students will get into the mindset of an artist in the studio at this exhibition tour and practical workshop responding to 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 the 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.

After a lunch break, students will return to the Clore Learning Centre. Working with our highly experienced artist-educators through enquiry based learning students will explore the themes raised in the exhibition and will create a personal sculptural response, inspired by the exhibition, considering scale, weight and material to take away.
