Introduction to Sculpture, Henry Moore Level 5/6. Domain: Dimension: The Arts Exploring and Responding


At Level 6, students discuss traditional and contemporary arts works using appropriate arts language to describe the content, structure and expressive qualities of their own and other people’s works from a range of arts disciplines and forms.
