AccessArt is proud to collaborate with Saatchi Learning to help schools explore contemporary sculpture.
Using selected artwork from the London Grads 21 exhibition, AccessArt and Saatchi Learning have created a series of resources for use with children aged 6 to 16 to explore how we might look at, make, and reflect upon sculpture.
The resources below are perfect for you to use in the classroom, gallery or community setting. Start with Step 1: Talking about Sculpture, then choose from one of our three projects, and finally end by reflecting upon what you have made. And please do share what you make on social media using #AccessArtwithSaatchiLearning

Use these simple questions with children of all ages to encourage pupils to become curious about contemporary sculpture. Read More
