A BRADFORD school in working with Yorkshire Sculpture Park to give pupils a valuable artistic experience.

St Matthew’s CE Primary School is extending its work with the award winning attraction that began with a visit earlier this year. The school signed up to the sculpture park’s All Aboard 2017-2018: Family Outreach Project as part of the Sparks programme.

The package involves a taster day for eight adults and eight children at the attraction, which ontains sculptures from some of the world’s top artists spread out over acres of countryside, on Saturday September 30.

Families from the school will work with artist Natalie Bellingham who will show them the current exhibitions, works from the Arts Council Collection, and the parkland. They will also join in a range of creative activities and workshops to build knowledge, develop communication, creativity and confidence, through special one-on-one time, helping to encourage future independent visits.

The families will also take part in public workshops during their visit to get a taste of what is available. Feedback from the families will help shape the creation and content of family resources at the sculpture park.

The project builds on the school’s existing extensive range of opportunities for families, many of which are arranged by Parent Liaison Co-ordinator Diane Lock.
