Schools: ARTiculation Discovery Day

13 & 22 Nov 2018, 9:45am - 3pm

Suitable for Year 10 students taking English, Art & Design and Design & Technology

Free of charge *cancellation fee applies

An unique experience for KS4 students to learn about Hepworth’s sculpture and develop skills in critical thinking, visual analysis and public speaking.

After a curator-led tour of the galleries, students will research and present their findings around a selected artwork. Supported by the Learning Team and students from University of Leeds, students will interview Director of The Hepworth Wakefield, Simon Wallis, and deliver short group presentations that encompass their research and personal responses.

The day will be led by Professor Abigail Harrison Moore, Head of School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds.

We are offering 4 schools the opportunity to bring 8 students p/day.

If you notify us of the cancellation of your booking less than 14 days before the event (or any part thereof), including failure to turn up on the day, you will incur a charge of £10 per student place cancelled.

We reserve the right to cancel any booking in the event of the gallery being unexpectedly closed, e.g. due to extreme weather conditions.
