Home Portraits

Alison Smith

Our new Art at Home challenge is to create a 'Home Portrait' - a 3D drawing of your home - then send it in to us to be featured online, and in our new digital gallery in the Henry Moore Institute.

Paloma Varga Weisz often makes sculptures that link to her childhood home, capturing a moment or memory from her life.

In 2020, many of us have spent more time at home, and we may have changed our homes to suit the lockdown.

Follow our tutorials to create a 3D drawing of part of your home, to capture a moment in your home and family in 2020.

Download our step by step guide below, which details everything you will need for this activity. You can also print out a template that has been designed specially for making your Home Portraits:

If you don't have a printer at home, watch this video to learn how to create the 3D base for your drawing:

We'll be featuring your Home Portraits online, and on our new digital gallery screen in the Institute. Send them into us at homeportrait@henry-moore.org and share them with us on our social media channels:
