London Art Galleries Visit

In February a group of key stage 5 students took the train up to London to visit the Saatchi Gallery and Tate Modern. The visit helped the year 12 students develop ideas for their personal components. Starting points were as varied as perfect/imperfect, tension and structure. Year 13 students were looking for work related to this summer’s external exam theme of variation and similarity.

The Saatchi Gallery exhibition was Black Mirror – Art as Social Satire, enabling students to make conceptual links between use of materials and different intended outcomes. At Tate Modern as well as looking at the permanent collection they also visited the Pierre Bonnard retrospective The Colour of Memory.  The exhibition brings together around 100 of his greatest works from museums and private collections around the world. It reveals how Bonnard’s intense colours and modern compositions transformed painting in the first half of the 20th century, and celebrates his unparalleled ability to capture fleeting moments, memories and emotions on canvas.

Responses to the visit are being documented and extended in their sketchbooks.
