Moderna Museet and National Museet
At the end of the Autumn Term, Year 9 visited the Moderna Museum’s collection of artworks and the newly opened National Museum in Stockholm. The students were able to expand their knowledge of contemporary and historical artworks and apply the skills and vocabulary practised this term in Art Theory and Art lessons.
During the trip students were asked to engage in drawing paintings, sculptures and the architecture of the buildings. They also applied their knowledge of the elements and principles of Art and Design through creative writing tasks and solving riddles. Having had this experience of seeing Art in context and visiting national collections, the year group will feel the benefit of this exposure in their future lessons!
