Year 5 visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to further develop the work they have been doing in their art lessons about Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. We enjoyed a tour around the sculptures with artist educator Vincent James and had a go at sketching the different sculptures, using natural materials such as grass to add shading to our sketches.
We were able to see a new installation ‘Beyond Time’ by Chiharu Shiota, which we thought was incredible.
The children worked in groups to create their own sculpture park with sculptures made from a variety of recycled materials. It was a fantastic learning experience for the children.
