Visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site, year 9 and 10 had an Art and Photography filled day this term in Saltaire, Bradford. Learners had the fantastic opportunity to visit one of the largest collections of David Hockney’s art, including ‘A Year in Normandie’, a 90m long frieze that captures the changing seasons over the course of a year. Sitting to sketch at the gallery, we were able to experience art close up, seeing the mark making techniques the artist used to create his digital art works. Along with creating a mini artist transcription in oil pastels, learners recorded some of the mark making that Hockney used. Learners also walked along the river taking photographs with digital cameras, connecting to technical skills. Art and photography created will be used in GCSE projects, so look out for an update of what has been created soon!
