The Art Department runs an annual East End Art Tour for Yr12 Art students among many other Gallery trips in and around London. In November this year we visited some highly innovative private gallery spaces situated around the East End of London and viewed some inspirational works alongside the more challenging pieces that feature in some of the smaller galleries. Work ranged from large scale kinetic pieces to small scale fine work and video/film/audio. Many of the ideas behind the works were thought provoking. Our Art students make a photographic record of the Tour and were able to speak to a number of Gallery owners/curators. The Art Tour provides opportunities to motivate and enthuse our students who move on to work in diverse ways utilising alternative materials with which to make personally informed artworks.
