Year 7 National Gallery trip - 29/11/2022
The Visual Art department took 65 Year 7 students to London on Tuesday to visit the National Gallery. The students were given an "Art style" scavenger hunt, where they had to find 10 different works of art using the clues given. Once they had completed this task, the students then undertook the second task of finding art works they liked and producing accurate drawing of them; these included, a portrait, a landscape, a sculpture, an abstract work and an artwork made from mainly "Line", which is the Formal Element they are currently studying in our subject area.
The students were a delight and members of the public commented on how good they thought their direct observation drawing was... clearly, we have some very good budding young artists at CCS. We wanted to thank parents for supporting this visit and giving the students the opportunity of such a rewarding and enriching experience.
