Year 6 have been learning about the British artist, Henry Moore. Henry Moore was primary a sculptor, but was also an official war artist during World War II. He created some very famous drawings of people sheltering in Underground stations during the Blitz. As Year 6 are studying this era, we decided to use Henry Moore’s work as inspiration for drawings and sculptures.
In this lesson, we studied a range of pictures by Henry Moore. We used a range of media including: charcoal, graphite and 6B pencils to sketch and shade our artwork.
We have created our own designs in the style of Henry Moore and used clay to turn them into sculptures. We think they are very impressive!
