Art and Design students visit Somerset House and The Courthauld Gallery

Last week saw the UAL (University of the Arts London) qualification level 3 Art and Design students escorted by their teachers to Somerset House and The Courtauld Gallery for a curation workshop. The group was given a tour of the gallery and critiqued works from the medieval period to the present day from a range of different countries which included Iraq, France, and England.


The students were also given the opportunity to view works by Van Gogh and Édouard Manet. Each student selected their favourite artist from of those they had learned about during the visit and curated their own mini exhibition in groups on location.


This trip, and the work undertaken therein, will contribute to the students’ end-of-year project and will be included in their end of year exhibition which will be held on 22nd June at the College. We strongly encourage staff, students, and parents to visit our Art students’ exhibition on that date; it will encompass a wonderful display of all these students’ artworks from the Final Major Project.

Many thanks to Chloe Catrell, Personal Tutor, and our Art teachers for sharing this information and the great photographs that they obtained from the trip.
