National Portrait Gallery Trip (23rd October 2017)

Year 11 Art and Photography pupils enjoyed a trip to London on Monday 23d October 2017 to visit the National Portrait Gallery and National Gallery.  Their current coursework topic is portraiture so we were hoping this trip would give them lots of ideas and information to inspire their own work.

Once we arrived at the gallery we were met by our guide who took us around and helped us ‘think like an artist’.  We looked at several key pieces in the gallery and talked in depth about the meaning and motivation behind each piece.  There were brilliant discussions between our guide and the pupils with lots of great ideas and thought provoking answers given by a number of pupils.  

Their behaviour and enthusiasm was outstanding and we had superb feedback from the gallery who enjoyed working with Abersychan School and feedback from the pupils who thought it was interesting and inspiring. 

Well done year 11!
