Manchester Gallery Visit: Art, Photography and everything in-between…

Year 11, 12 and 13 Art and Photography students experienced North West’s renowned Manchester and Whitworth galleries. The visit formed an essential part of the Art and Photography curriculum learning experience. Students were exposed to art and photographic works of historical significance, educating students as to the culture, trends and society in both historical and contemporary society. Upon return to college, students will produce a visual and written response to their most inspiring works.

The  Manchester gallery boasted works by The Dutch Masters, L. S Lowry and Adolphe Valette whilst the Whitworth  gallery exhibited extensive  works by  artists such as William Blake, J.M.W Turner, Rossetti, William Morris and more recent works by Cornelia Parker, Michael Craig Martin, and print artist Barbara Brown to name a few.

For many, it was their first visit to an art gallery, it has opened the eyes and minds of our budding art and photography students as to future creative possibilities; watch this space! 

Students engaged in a full day of observation, taking notes as well as creating photo shoots and drawings within the galleries themselves; forming a critical part of their portfolio work.

We are impressed with all of our students who arrived ready for learning, were hardworking and respectful within the gallery throughout the day, truly and creatively demonstrating the St Mary’s way!

A very special thank you to Mr Hardy for organising a fantastic trip!
