On the 10th of July, the new GCSE Year 9 Art students went to Tate Britain joined by some of the school's art department, including Mrs Prime, Ms Nicholls and Mrs Sealy, alongside a few Year 12 art prodigies. Since we were working on natural form at the time, we centred our trip on artists like Henry Moore, viewing his drawings and sculptures, and Francis Bacon. We visited many rooms that housed huge paintings of historic battlefields, and beautiful night skies adorning the walls. There were also various rooms with different approaches to art; for instance, one room used machinery, while another centred on UV light, and one even with long rows of rice! The visit was an unforgettable experience, opening our eyes to the limitless styles of art - I would love to go again.
