Discovering Moore

Artists in Year 5 learnt about the work of sculptor Henry Moore whilst attending an all day workshop hosted by Hawley Primary School. Moore produced over 6000 sculptures during his long career and he used simple flowing lines to produce some amazing art pieces inspired by natural objects around him.
Newport pupils got creative and messy with clay after spending time collecting and sketching in the playground. The variety of sculptures produced was amazing and everyone enjoyed viewing the numerous sculptures produced during the day.
This summer Hatfield House in Hertfordshire (childhood home of Elizabeth I) have an exhibition of Moore's sculptures in the their beautiful gardens. So if you fancy seeing for yourself the scale of some Henry Moore's work this would make a great day out over the summer holidays.
