On Wednesday the 1st of March Year 11 Art students had the opportunity to visit the Tate Britain in Pimlico, this art gallery trip contributed to their GCSE studies as they took photos, did observational drawings and took notes on the pieces of art that related to their chosen exam themes.
The students independently observed the art work in the gallery. The work on show was all by British artists from 1500 to the present day and includes work from artists like JMW Turner to more contemporary artists like Richard Hamilton and Tracey Emin.
The notes and observations the students took allowed them to further their coursework by including images and photos they took in their art books. This will count towards their final grades in August, as it shows the students are studying a variety of artists and different styles of art from different periods of time.
Over the course of the day the students enhanced their knowledge on art, and additionally enjoyed a really fun afternoon looking found the gallery!
