Year 11 Art Trip

Exposing students to art outside of the classroom is an important tool to assist in creating exciting and thoughtful responses to art themes – and so every year we take the Year 11 Art students to the Tate Modern in London as the start of their exam unit (Reflections). This year we had a fantastic experience seeing many new and thought provoking pieces, as well as going on the Millennium Bridge and walking along the Embankment by the river Thames. Students were able to be inspired by the stunning views from the viewing tower, 10 storeys high, on a cold but sunny winter’s day. The trip has given the artists lots of ideas to bring back into the classroom and inspire them in their exam unit.
