Y5 & Y6 visit to Hepworth Gallery

Year 5 and 6 visited The Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield for a fantastic day of Art. They were split into their year groups and spent half the day sketching around the many galleries on offer, looking at the artwork of local artist Barbara Hepworth. Her area of expertise was sculpture using a variety of different media. The children produced some super, very observant sketching to be proud of. The other half of the day was spent doing a workshop called ‘Think, Print, Ink’ with an artist. This consisted of some very creative sketching activities including drawing on each other’s backs, drawing with our opposite hand and drawing with our eyes closed! We then used these to print Hepworth-inspired images onto paper using a special printing ink.
