Art trip to the Barbican

Year 7 students sketching on Barbican gallery art trip

All of year 7 went on an art trip to the Barbican Centre to see the exhibition ‘Unravel: The Power and Politics of Textiles in Art’. The exhibition was based around textiles which we have been studying during our art lessons this half term. We were given booklets to complete whilst we looked at the exhibition and then did some more drawing around the Barbican Centre. This was a great experience, as we got to see many pieces of artwork in real life that we have studied. I was inspired by all the artists and their work, and drew lots of detailed pictures in my booklet. We really enjoyed this trip and cannot wait for more of them as we progress up the school!
