On Tuesday 21st November year 10 GCSE artists went on a trip to Tate Modern.
The purpose of the trip was to introduce students to a wide variety of art and inspire their own art practice. The trip was a real success as students’ feedback was exceptionally positive, especially about their realization of the enormous variety of art and a much greater understanding of the academic importance of the context of each piece of art. This was evident in the enthusiasm in which they completed the ‘treasure hunt’ task Ms Jacobs set them – finding different artworks in the many galleries across the site – and the studies they did of their chosen artists’ work. All students benefited greatly from the visit, especially our AG&T and SEN students.
