Brayton students inspired by gallery visit
Brayton High School pupils drew inspiration from a recent visit to the Hepworth art gallery in Wakefield.
GCSE Art and Design students from years 10 and 11 made the trip to the £35 million building as part of their course.
Cath Walker, head of faculty for Arts at the secondary school said: “It was really beneficial for the students to look at the work of other artists.
“It was real-life art and it was also relevant and for many it would have been the first time visiting a gallery so it was a worthwhile visit.”
Students enjoyed exhibits by artists such as Eduardo Paolozzi and Tony Cragg but the main focus of the day was to see the work of the well known sculptor Barbara Hepworth, whom the gallery was named after when it first opened back in May 2011.
Students had several drawing tasks to complete on the day with Cath remarking that some “excellent work” was produced.
The students are now busy developing this work further by designing and making their own sculptures.
All this work will then form part of their final GCSE portfolios.
