2. Sculpture at Chatsworth

£2 per pupil | Visit must include the house or garden

Use a range of looking, drawing and analysis techniques to explore a selection of classical and contemporary sculptural objects. This session includes observational drawing skills taking place inside the house and/or the gardens.  Learners will be introduced to a select range of 3D objects to study. Learners will practice drawing from observation and making visual notes through mark making and reflective annotation. These drawings and marks will be used as a basis for a 3D sculptural interpretation, demonstrating an appreciation of form and manipulation of materials.

Art workshops include an interactive talk and practical art-making activities; sessions are designed to enhance visual literacy and develop technical and creative skills.
