Trip to the Hepworth Art Gallery

Thursday 23 November 2023

Today, we had an absolutely fantastic school trip to the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield .

We started the day looking around the garden, the different galleries in the art museum and sketching some of the sculptures. We saw lots of different pieces of art and sculptures by some very famous artists.


After lunch, we took part in a print-making workshop which included looking at some Barbara Hepworth sculptures and finding inspiration from their shapes. We learned that Barbara Hepworth was inspired by nature to produce her own art. We also looked for repeated patterns in nature and produced our own drawings using tracing paper and a black frame.


Using our inspiration from the shapes and repeating patterns, we were ready to make out own piece of printed art.
