Exploring sculpture at the RA

Create your own mini sculptures exploring the theme of self-identity, inspired by the work of Antony Gormley in this free, full-day workshop for young people aged 15-19.

Working with materials such as chicken wire, jesmonite, mod rock, oil pastels and acrylic paint, you will produce objects that reference your own personal history as you explore the possibilities of playing and making.

Led by recent RA Schools graduate, Rachel Jones, in this workshop you will look at a selection of contemporary artists such as Antony Gormley RA, Rashaad Newsome, Ayo Akingbade and Kerry James Marshal. You’ll be encouraged to explore and discuss the different approaches artists take to expressing ideas around identity and representation of the self, via performance, film, painting and sculpture. This workshop also includes a free ticket to our Antony Gormley exhibition.

Rachel Jones is a graduate of the RA Schools, studying for her Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art, previously she studying BA Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art. Her work has been exhibited in the UK at various institutions including the Royal Scottish Academy and The Fleming Collection. She was artist in residence at the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art in 2016.

Our new young people’s programme invites students from all backgrounds, aged 15 to 19, to take part in practical art workshops. Led by professional artists, these free, day-long sessions will take inspiration from our world class exhibition programme and the RA Collection, working with new materials and discussing different approaches to making art.
