Year 8 trip to Tonbridge Art Gallery

Sara, the art educator and Emily the Art curator greeted us and introduced us to the four artists, Jeanette Barnes, Christy Burdock and Meghana Bisineer and Louise Bourgeois. The work ranged from huge chalk pastel drawings by Jeanette Barnes showing the construction work of the Olympic Park to small dry point prints by Louise Bourgeois. After an interesting guided tour, talk and discussion around the exhibition we chose our favourite artwork and sketched it in our sketchbooks.

Most of us really enjoyed Louise Bourgeois work because we all felt her work was amusing, intruiging and ‘quirky’. Abi did a study of her work called ‘Woman in a bathtub’. Finlay copied one of her dry point print called ‘Sculptress’ and Sam chose ‘Scissors’. Rufus, Dylan and Honor selected sections of Christy Burdocks art, which were large scale illustrative pencil drawings with thought provoking topics. We had the whole gallery to ourselves which meant we could move around and talk about the artwork as if it was a classroom. It was fascinating to see such a variety of drawings ranging in size, style and techniques. A great art trip.
