Details

The National Arts Education Archive (NAEA) at Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) was established in 1985 to provide a documentary trace of the development of arts education in the UK and worldwide, by collecting children’s and students' work and the papers, letters and work of key educators and artists in the visual arts, music and language.


Drop in on 1 October to meet the NAEA staff, on hand to reveal some hidden treasures from more than 100 catalogued collections. This is a rare chance to explore some of the archive's more rare book collection and children's writings.
