Year 10 Art field trip draws inspiration for GCSE project
On Wednesday 2nd February, Year 10 GCSE artists enjoyed a fantastic day at the Eden Project, Cornwall, gathering source material for their acrylic studies based on the work of Georgia O’Keeffe.
Armed with cameras and with a keen eye for the patterns and colours in nature they took several hundred photographs between them!
The renowned artist Georgia O’Keeffe was inspired by the plants and flowers that she came across while travelling around the world in the 20th Century, so the Eden Project gave our students the opportunity to experience and photograph exotic plants and flowers that they would not be able to find in their own gardens and this makes for powerful and authentic studies of O’Keeffe’s techniques.
We were delighted to run this trip again now that restrictions have eased. It is always a successful and inspiring trip and we were very fortunate to have beautiful clear skies on the day which made it great for taking crisp and bright photographs.
Thank you to the Year 10 artists who were fantastic and approached the task creatively and enthusiastically.
We look forward to seeing the final acrylic paintings!
