London Art Trip

Our Year 11 GCSE artists visited several London galleries last week. They were taken to Tate Modern where they visited the Olafur Eliasson Exhibition. They went on to the Cindy Sherman Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery and finally to the Mall Gallery.

Renowned artist, David Cobley RP NEAC currently has an exhibition on at Mall Gallery. David is one of the UK's leading portrait and figure painters. People are his subject matter, and he has been drawing and painting them at work, rest and play for most of his life. Our Year 11 students were surprised and delighted that David himself was at the Mall at the time of their visit and was kind enough to talk them through his work.
