Art in Pearl Class

This half term we are learning about the artist and sculptor Henry Moore.


In a few weeks, we are going on a class trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to see some of his sculptures to help to inspire us to create some sculptures of our own.

Keep your eyes peeled out for the trip letter coming home soon!

In preparation for this, we decided that we need to practise our sketching techniques to help us to get things like size in proportion, adding on detail and shading with light and dark.

We had a selection of natural things to choose from and we really enjoyed ourselves. We think that we are blossoming into brilliant artists! What do you think?

How to continue the learning at home:

  • Research who Henry Moore is and why he is famous.
  • Have a go at sketching something that you have at home.
  • Try and sketch one of Henry Moore’s sculptures.
