GCSE and A Level Art students visit Liverpool

On the 17th October 2018, all GCSE and A level Art pupils from Year 9 to Year 13 went on an inspirational trip to Liverpool. 

Early in the morning we met in the Art studio ready to depart on the coach for an hour and a half long journey to our first gallery: The Liverpool Tate gallery. On the coach journey we were given our itineraries and activities for the day, most of the of us were in shock of how much we had to do for the end of the day but were ready to take on the challenge. We finally arrived at the Tate gallery where the girls were given freedom to explore the various exhibitions and arranged to meet back at midday for lunch and surprisingly no one was late!

After a well-deserved lunch we all headed out onto the docks where some of us took pictures and inspiration for our future projects. We then got onto the coach and travelled to the Walker Gallery where we saw many famous works including paintings by Monet and Henry Matisse. 

This was then the end of our trip and we were all sad to leave the Art galleries in Liverpool. 
Overall we all thoroughly enjoyed this visit and have developed our understanding of modern and historical art, from abstract structures to classical paintings, we would all like to thank Mrs Kershaw, Mrs Davitt and Miss Kerfoot for organising this amazing experience for us.
