Yorkshire Sculpture Park

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is an outdoor art gallery and has recently celebrated 40 years of art without walls. YSP is based at the Bretton Hall Country Park Estate in Yorkshire and covers over 500 acres of outdoor space including lakes, woodland, pathways and fields. The park's open-air collection comprises of long term-loans, gifts from individuals and artists and a number of site specific installations. At any one time there are always at least 75 sculptures to be seen outdoors and often there are lots more. In addition the park has a number of indoor exhibition spaces including two gallery spaces, an education site and the chapel. It is also the home to the  National Arts Education Archive in the purpose built Lawerence Batley Centre on the former Bretton Hall college campus site where many Arts Educators were trained by the University of Leeds.

It is in this amazing, unique and inspiring space that I get to call myself an Artist Educator and be part of a fantastic team of Artist Educators delivering quality and engaging family and formal learning opportunities. Formal learning opportunities include half day 'Walk Talk Make' tours and full day 'Outdoor Sculpture Building Workshops' as well as specially tailored workshops/projects. Family learning opportunities include seasonal workshops, outdoor sculpture building, exhibition explorations and ArtsAward clubs. In addition there is a special project that works with a local community of young people and their families to increase their knowledge/understanding of and engagement with the park.
