This week, Year 3 visited the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield to get inspiration from Barbara Hepworth’s artwork.
The children went around the galleries and chose the artwork that was their favourite or most interesting. Then, they sketched the designs, considering the different shapes. After, a resident artist helped the children with some clay sculpting, using the skills they had learnt in a design and technology lesson back at school.
Afterwards, Daisy said, “I enjoyed looking at Barbara Hepworth’s artwork in the museum. The detail of her work is really impressive.” Karol added, “I enjoyed making the sculptures because I learnt how to make holes in the clay with different tools.”
