Liverpool Art Gallery Visit

Our GCSE and GCE students enjoyed the experience of taking in the diverse range of art on display at both the Walker Art Gallery and the Tate Liverpool, despite the wet weather! Pupil favourites included the portrait of actress Kim Cattrall by Sky Arts ‘Portrait Artist of the Year’ winner, Samira Addo, and ‘Motherless’ by Arthur Socks (1846 – 1889) to name but two, not to mention the Slaves of Fashion: New Works by The Singh Twins, and Artist Rooms: Roy Lichtenstein in Focus exhibitions.

“I feel so lucky to see great artists’ masterpieces through my own eyes. What a difference it was from only seeing art work on my mobile phone. It was definitely a valuable experience for me to experience art in such a fresh way.” Anna Yian L.

“On this school trip, I experienced a lot of breath-taking and thought-provoking art pieces. These have certainly given me new inspiration to bring a new light to my GCSE artwork. The Walker museum especially inspired me, seeing how art can also mean something and not just be a picture. All the hard work and time put into the paintings there showed me that maybe I could even do that myself. I also want to learn that incredible skill shown there: I want to be able to create something like that, and I believe I can with hard work and practice.” Ellis D.
