Year 1 have been studying sculpure this term as part of their Art Award Discover accreditation. They have enjoyed making simple animal sculptures from plastercine in class, after looking at the works of Henry Moore and Elizabeth Frick. As we live in Gateshead we have looked at some of the works of Antony Gormley in more depth, and focussed on the Angel of the North. Yesterday we went along to the Shipley Art Gallery and took part in a workshop called Making an Angel, where the children focussed on making observational drawings of the angel and using good team work produced simple model sculptures from a range of collage materials. We were also lucky to be able to visit the fabulous Knitted Sculpture Garden on display at the gallery. take a look this summer, it’s great!
