- Year 11 art and graphics students are inspired whilst visiting Hertfordshire University’s galleries and sculptures
Last week, a group of our Year 11 art and graphics students visited Hertfordshire University’s art galleries and sculptures. Their task, to find inspiration for their own creations based around the theme of POWER.
After sketching works from the permanent exhibition at the renowned Chapman Gallery, they toured current students’ BA fine art exhibition and they heard from experts about which jobs and courses are available at this school of creative arts.
Here we are pictured in front of the immersive and multi-sensory sculpture Mountain built by local artist Diane Maclean in 1939. Inspired by glacial movement and climate change, this stainless steel sculpture’s towering planes and reflective surfaces disorientate, whilst the small windows featuring illuminated images of minerals draw you in.
Feedback from welcoming Uni staff was that our pupils ‘were a real pleasure to host’.
