You might remember that a few weeks about we visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to see some of Henry Moore’s sculptures up close to have a go at sketching them.

Can you remember the visit? Which was your favourite sculpture? What did we do whilst we were at the Sculpture Park? How did we get there?
Back in class, we decided that we wanted to make our our sculptures, inspired by those we have seen created by Henry Moore.
First we made pipe cleaner figures to make sure that we had sizes and shapes of our body parts in proportion and then sketched them onto paper before we got a little messy with the clay.
Next was the fun and messy part! We each had a block of clay that we turned into a human sculpture.
Here are some of the techniques we used…
bend, roll, stretch, twist, fix, rub, smooth, press, attach
We think that our sculptures look amazing and very life like! What do you think?
