London Tate Modern & The National Gallery Trip
On Friday 3rd February our GCSE and A Level Artists & Photographers took part in an enriching trip to visit Tate Modern and The National Gallery, London.
Everyone who took part, viewed the Cezanne exhibition at Tate Modern and visited first hand exhibits from famous artists and photographers. Pupils were greatly impressed by the breadth and scope of the exhibition as well as being able to see so many of Paul Cezanne’s most influential post-impressionist masterpieces, first hand.
Pupils made careful observational sketches of the work that inspired them most and, in doing so, were able to gain a real insight into the style and vision of an artist that transformed the world of Modern Art that followed. Pupils also made the most out of touring the wider galleries and exhibitions of the Tate Modern, viewing a wide range of exciting and challenging contemporary work including installations, films and sculpture.
We walked from one gallery to the other, enabling our photographers to embrace all that the River Thames and its surroundings has to offer. On embarking at The National Gallery, pupils were able to view masters of the art world like Claude Monet, J.M.W Turner, Edgar Degas, John
Constable, Leonardo da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh. This enchanting visit enabled our pupils to gain inspiration and ideas for their current externally set assignments and current portfolio projects.
