Art Trips this week

This week Year 10 and 11 art students had two trips to galleries.

On Tuesday they visited the British Museum for their ancient cultures project.  The students looked at sculptures and different ancient artefacts from countries all around the world, to gain first hand experience of them.  They drew and photographed the pieces, examining the materials and craft techniques used in those times to produce the work.  This was beneficial in helping the students to develop the work in their portfolios based on this.

On Wednesday Year 10 went to visit the Tate Modern to view a mixture of present day contemporary work as well as 20th century artwork.  Students were able to experience these first hand, looking at the Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural aspects of the artists' work in relation to their own work.
