Antony Gormley sculptures!

We have been really busy this week with some amazing skills based art work!

We looked at an Artist called Antony Gormley who sculpted the Angel of the North. He also made a lot of interesting sculptures based on the human body so we decided to have a go at recreating them!

We learnt how to mould clay using our thumbs and fingers. We had to make sure the clay was really smooth so it dried out without holes. We made head shapes and used clay sticks to poke holes in for eyes. It was so much fun and we were brilliant at our first go at moulding clay!
