On Thursday, Year 5 took a trip to the Tate Modern, where we were able to view some of the artwork that we studied last term. Some pieces of art were far larger than we imagined they would be and much more detailed, such as The Darkward Trail.
Some of us were dizzy seeing the optical illusion art of Bridget Riley and Carlos Cruz-Diez. The art was so much more effective in person!
Having already studied some of the work in the gallery, the children could not only recognise the art pieces but also discuss the way they was made and how they compared in reality to looking at them on a screen in class. We were lucky enough to see large installations and sculptures as well as short films and interactive experiences.
