10 March - Yr 9 Visit Tate Britian

Tate_modern4

Year 9 artists visited the Tate Britain on Tuesday, skipping the queues to visit the eagerly anticipated David Hockney exhibition; an extensive retrospective of his work spanning the past 6 decades. The show presented an iconic selection of his work from the 60’s when he was living in LA, right up to the present day as he continues to embrace new technology. In the afternoon our students visited the permanent collection, a walk through 500 years of British art, and in small groups gave presentations on chosen artworks they had researched before their visit. We hope the trip provided inspiration for our students as they embark on their journey towards their GCSE, and look forward to seeing what they produce as a result!
