Art Trip to LondonPosted on: 02/11/2017
A successful day gallery visiting with Sixth Form students included the National Portrait Gallery as the first stop where we had a little look around at perusing the Cezanne Portraits Exhibition which catalogued over 50 of the works that Cezanne painted during his career.
Full of inspiration students then walked over to the Royal Academy of Arts to experience the work of Jasper Johns in his ‘Something Resembling Truth’ exhibition. A prolific American artist working from the 1950s through to present day; the diversity of his artwork ensured that there was something that all of us could relate to. From brightly coloured, flags, and targets through to textural numbers and hidden images. Jasper Johns left us all with a lot to think about on the journey home.
Overall a fantastic day was had by all and Mrs Hodge and I are looking forward to seeing how the students respond to the artwork we saw.
