Lesson 3 - The big Draw of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth - drawing in a large group of large sculptures

Lesson 2 - comparing Henry Moore with Barbara Hepworth

3 pupils from Hawthorn have been inspired to sketch more Henry Moore forms at home

LESSON 1 - HENRY MOORE'S SKETCHBOOKS inspired Hawthorn class to fill a page with drawings of Henry's monumental sculptures. We used biro, 2b, 6b - just like the artist.

HARVEST STILL LIFE

We looked at some Impressionist painters and their Still Life drawings of fruit and vegetables. 

Here are our observational chalk pastel drawings with chalk and charocal. Pictured are ongoing work and then final pieces. We were drawing for a sustained period of time - an hour.

HAWTHORN CLASS AS BOOK ILLUSTRATORS

Inspired by Quentin Blake, we have experimented in our sketchbooks drawing and painting the characters from 'The Enormous Crocodile'. 

We discussed his style as 'deliberately scruffy' with black lines that make the pictures 'pop out'.

We will be adding black pen just like Quentin Blake next time.

PICASSO THAT EYE!

We've been learning about the famous artist, Pablo Picasso, as part of International Day (our country was Spain).

We experimented in our sketchbooks using his Cubist style. We explored oil pastels as well.

We Picassoed that eye!

HAWTHORN YEAR 4

We have been exploring the work of artist Keith Haring who called himself 'the boy who could not stop drawing'.

Then we've experimented with patterns and mark-making with 2B, 6B, graphite stick and layered with biro and felt pen.

KEITH HARING HAS HELPED US TO HAVE IDEAS FOR A GREAT CLASSROOM

We love the work of artist, Keith haring. His images help us see how we should love one another and care for each other.

"We love because God loved us first," Gospel of John Chapter 4:19

We challenged ourselves to make a Keith Haring figure in clay and then make group sculptures with inspiring titles. Our class rules aren't rules just ideas from Keith about how each of us can help each other be happy in our classroom.

PAIRED SCULPTURE WORK

In pairs we used our Keith Haring figures to combine and make a group sculpture. We wanted to explore how each figure is supported by another and that is what we should be striving for in our classroom and in life. We then came up with life affirming titles.

Marlo and Sam, 'Frienshipede'.

Catrin and Ella, 'Teamwork makes the dream work'.

Amelia and Emily, 'We saved our friendship'.
