Sculpture in Schools, Art UK and Leeds Art Gallery, 2018. Copyright Leeds Art Gallery.


These long-term, in-depth projects are seeing artists based in Yorkshire working with five schools: Abbey Grange Academy, Blackgates Primary School, and John Jamison School in Leeds and  Crofton Academy and Minsthorpe Community College in Wakefield.

Already underway, artists are visiting the schools and pupils are also making visits to all four of the Yorkshire Sculpture International galleries.

We have linked up with ArtUK  to take key works from our sculpture collections into schools.

Each sculpture will spend a whole day in the schools, with activities planned to reach the whole school community.

Supported by ArtUK and Ernest Cook Trust

Our engagement programme

Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 has an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.

We are exploring sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
