Henry Moore Sculpture

Third graders critiqued the work of Henry Moore, noting the organic positive and negative shapes. of his sculptures.  They used oil clay to work out their idea of a flowing organic shape that seems to grow.  An interesting negative shape was started with a milkshake straw.  White clay was used for the final sculpture.  A coat of black acrylic paint was allowed to dry, then metallic acrylic paint was sponged on.  Students turned their sculptures to determine the most interesting view.  The sculptures were glued on to a scrap of wood that had been painted black.

This project was inspired by the Alum Creek site on Artsonia.
