Look carefully at the following images of abstract sculptures. Use the following ideas to jot down your first impressions.
- Think about what these sculptures are or what they could represent.
- How do they make you feel – happy, sad? Why?
- How would you describe each sculpture (the colours, the shapes etc.)?
- What questions do you have about each sculpture?
