Site: Leeds Art Gallery
This workshop is led by museums staff.
Investigate different materials and ways of making three dimensional art in the Gallery and then make an imaginative sculpture from card, paper clips, elastic bands and string.
This workshop will foster understanding of three dimensional art, introducing useful vocabulary.
Pupils share their ideas about sculpture and then in small groups investigate the many different materials and ways of making it in the Gallery and when appropriate outside on Victoria gardens. Returning to the Studio they manipulate and change simple materials - card, paper clips, elastic bands and string - to make artwork that says something about the world in small groups. The workshop concludes with a presentation of outcomes and whole group discussion of things that are interesting in the sculptures.
