On Friday Art Club were lucky enough to go on a trip to London to visit The Tate Britain. https://www.tate.org.uk/visit/tate-britain
The children and teachers got on the train at Folkestone Central and we spotted some art work before we even boarded the train, the art installation ‘Like the Back of My Hand’. We had fun seeing which hands matched the size of our own.
We used our sketchbooks on the train to keep busy and pass the time, we even got some sweets! The train journey went by quickly and before we knew it we had arrived in London. We walked towards The Tate Britain which was going to be a short walk through Whitehall and Westminster. We got to see some famous London landmarks along the way, we saw Elizabeth Tower with Big Ben, The London Eye, The Houses of Parliament, New Scotland Yard, and the Cenotaph.
We stropped and ate our packed lunches at Victoria Tower Gardens South, and then made our way to The Tate Britain.
Everyone had a fantastic time, we were able to explore some works by Henry Moore, Turner, Mark Rothko and we spent time enjoying a commission from Hew Locke called ‘The Procession’. https://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/hew-locke
The trip was fantastic and we all had lots of fun, were able to experience so many amazing pieces of art and learnt so much.
