Year 8 Art Trip To The Hastings Contemporary / Phase 2

During the Summer Term, half of our present Year 8 pupils attended a visit to the ‘Jerwood Gallery’.  Now called ‘The Hastings Contemporary’, the gallery offered a tour and an artist’s workshop by the illustrator Ed Boxall.

The pupils were asked to consider the paintings on display and verbalise their thoughts.  They needed to think deeply about their opinions and support their reasons for liking or disliking a piece of art.

The workshop was based around the theme of ‘Morning, Noon and Night’.  Using mixed media, our pupils were asked to deliver a series of abstract images with a limited palette.  They delivered in spades!
