Henry Moore Art Project 

To create your Henry Moore art project, you will need cardboard of at least 4mm thick, scissors and glue.

Print out and use our template (or create your own) and cut out two of all the shapes, making sure you keep them in order.

Because you have cut out two of each shape initially glue these pairs together. Take number 1 pair and use this as a base, then glue each shape into its place on top of this in chronological (number) order.

Starting at the base, glue each of the shapes into place. Any excess can be cut off as you go. 

 

Once you have built your sculpture, use a sharp scalpel and carefully shape and smooth any harsh edges and improve the shape.

Finish the sculpture off by using paper mache. 

Mix PVA glue and water to create your paste and rip newspaper into strips and use the paste to stick them on.

You should only need one or two layers since the structure inside is solid. Carefully sand the structure down so the lines of the paper are less visible.
