2nd grade Sculpture Gardens

2nd graders studied the life and artwork of Henry Moore, and English abstract sculptor. Henry Moore's sculptures are large and often displayed in outdoor, public settings. We discussed why an artist might want to display his/her artwork in a public place, and we discussed how Henry Moore had an exhibit here in Atlanta at the Botanical Gardens a few years ago. Students created paper scupture gardens complete with an abstract figurative statue in the middle.
