Meet Barbara Hepworth introduces young readers to the sculptures of one of Britain’s most significant modern artists. Created by ceramics artist and illustrator Laura Carlin, this book provides insights into Hepworth’s bold works, both naturalistic and abstract, and inspires children to create 3D forms inspired by the natural world. The Meet the Artist series encourages children to use art as an avenue for exploring ideas and expressing their own experiences through art- making.
