Project inspiration for artists at Tate Modern, Tate Britain, National Gallery & Wisley Gardens Posted - 09/10/2017Back
The first few weeks of school have been a busy time for the Art department with trips to provide inspiration for the term’s projects.
The Fifth Form GCSE Art class headed off for a 'Walk Through Art' at Tate Britain where visual analysis skills were called for. A quick boat trip down the Thames allowed them to look at the use of materials at Tate Modern.
A Level Fine Artists studied contemporary and Renaissance portraiture at the National Portrait Gallery before having a look at Impressionist painting techniques at The National Gallery.
Then AS Photographers and Graphic Designers took a trip to the RHS gardens at Wisley to study its corporate identity and use the vast horticultural collection as inspiration for their photography. It has been a real pleasure to see how inspired the pupils were to view ‘real’ works of art and to see what a difference making a trip can be to their work.
