Artist of the term – Barbara Hepworth

This term, our artist Barbara Hepworth has proved to be very inspirational for Year 3.

So far we have researched who she was,  what media she worked in and what she was inspired by.  We put this into a fact file in our sketchbooks.

This week, we have been getting ready to move onto some sculpture of our own. To do this we have been creating tonal drawings using charcoal.  Just like Barbara Hepworth, we were using natural forms as our subject -seed heads (and it just so happens our Science topic is all about plants!)

 

Watch this space as we begin our 3D form work next week!
