It’s a summer of Curiosity & Wonder at Yorkshire Sculpture Park!

Taking inspiration from YSP’s gallery exhibitions, this summer holiday programme of events and pop-up projects is designed to spark creativity, curiosity and shared moments of wonder and delight for all ages.

Kicking off on Saturday 15 July with an Opening Celebration Day, the programme will continue throughout the summer, with a closing event on Saturday 2 September.

Budding artists can join in with shared Live Painting sessions with artist Natasha Joseph, collectively creating a Wonderwall of individually coloured panels. There are Family Life Drawing sessions with artist Jo Blaker, a Guided Meditation led by Rangoli Radio and Pyramid Spiritual Societies, as well as family-focused creative writing sessions taking place throughout the day. Leeds-based poet and illustrator Matthew Hodson will be hosting a Poetry Reading for families with reading from his collection of nonsense poems Forwards Always. Matthew’s book is a toy, a script, a game and a puzzle, designed to be activated by performance and play.

The programme features plenty of other activities and events to look forward too including everything from a family rave, wax and clay sculpting, and live music to experiencing huge clouds of foam bubbles.
