On Saturday 5th October 22 art students, from a number of courses, including Year 11 GCSE, Years12/13 IBCC and IB, attended a visit to London to extend their knowledge of art and support their development through their courses.

The students left the Academy at 7:00am via coach and arrived first at London’s Tate Modern Art Gallery, Bankside. A big art institution which is home to some of the most famous works in the world, including some by Tracey Emin, Max Ernst, Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet . Students explored various exhibitions and had the opportunity to see paintings, sculptures and installations up close and personal; experiencing everything in its full glory – something learning in the classroom cannot always fulfill. Students took photographs and notes on works which inspired them ready to take back to school and embed into their projects.

After lunch by the river we boarded the coach to make our way to Brick Lane, once home of ‘Jack the Ripper’ and an area that used to be considered one of London ‘slums’. It has been transformed into a popular location for the most edgy and artistic of crowds, featuring galleries, restaurants, food stalls and vintage markets. Brick Lane and surrounding streets are also home to the city’s Street Art culture. Students made their way through busy streets, lined with buskers and food stalls to capture some of the most famous street art and graffiti pieces by artists such as Banksy, D*Face, ROA and Shepherd Fairey.

The day was a fantastic experience all around and the Art Team is extremely proud of how enthusiastic and mature our students were, a real credit to the Academy. We now hope this trip will further inspire our young artists to create beautiful art work which will support their coursework
