Teachers’ Open Evening

Tuesday 27 February 2018

5pm – 7pm, at the New Art Centre

Free with light refreshments
A special tour of the Sculpture Park, Gallery and Artists House at Roche Court. The particular focus of the tour was to preview the newly installed exhibition in the gallery of work by Ian Stephenson whose paintings were described as ‘the most beautiful being made in this country’ when they were first seen in London in the 1960s.

The evening was an opportunity to network, discuss and enjoy looking at contemporary art with other professionals and learn more about the Trust’s programme of opportunities and events for 2018.

Family Workshop: Wild Beasts

Tuesday 13 February 2018

10am – 12.30pm, at the New Art Centre

 

Families were invited to discover wild beasts within the sculpture park! How and why do artists portray animals in sculpture and what might they symbolise? Families brought their imagination and were led on an interactive tour of the sculpture park to explore answers to these questions, and many more. We then used our findings to inspire our own animal-themed artworks.
