GCSE Fine Art Students Visit Tate

Year 9 GCSE Fine Art Students visited Tate Britain recently as part of their GCSE studies. They had the opportunity to work with textile artist Yemi and discover the gallery in alternative ways. Yemi is interested in how materials can be used and also how they can be perceived.

Students worked with mirrors, drawing from art works hanging from the ceiling and trying to capture shape and form whilst the art work moved.

They then made connections between their marks and those in other piece of work in the gallery.

Girls also got to explore art work in unusual ways, using magnifying glasses to zoom into the artworks and look deep into the materials.

Unusual materials

They also explored different ways materials can be used and challenged ideas of what materials are capable of. For example, Yemi uses mud as a printing technique. She also shared threads which were made from milk and bananas.

"All the students massively benefit from learning outside of the classroom, and for some students this is the first time they will have experienced an art gallery," said Head of Art Clare Stanhope. "It is a vital and fun part of their education. We try and provide as many trips and artist experiences as we can throughout their time with us."

Jessica, Year 9, said: "The trip was really interesting, and I wish I had taken my art book with me to take more notes!"
