Year 7 Gifted and Talented Art visit to Millfield

Earlier this month we took 30 gifted and talented artists to Millfield for the afternoon to visit a sculpture exhibition, the Summer Show and their permanent sculptures around the beautiful grounds. Students saw a range of work in the summer exhibition and I enjoyed having a discussion with students about a painting by Emma Housley called "Wild Swimming". Next we saw the brightly coloured temporary sculpture exhibition before ...walking round some of the grounds to visit the permanent sculptures. The students took lots of photos and shared in philosophical discussions about what makes this sculpture a piece of art work.

I hope to take students to see Millfield exhibitions again in the future, the students behaved impeccably.
