Year 10 Art Residential

You are here:

Last term the Year 10 Art students took part in a two day residential to the National Media Museum and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.  This is the first time that school has run a subject specific residential.

The National Media Museum is situated in the heart of Bradford, UNESCO City of Film. It aims to be the best museum in world for inspiring people to learn about, engage with and create media.

There are traditional and interactive galleries that encourage young people to investigate and celebrate film, photography, television, animation and new media.

The students had complete access to the Media Museum and were able to be ‘hands on’ with T.V. cameras and a range of electronic games from the early 1980s.  They were able to experiment with the Green Screen and become a newsreader.  One suite offered the opportunity to watch archived T.V., programmes such as Morph and the very first episode of Thunderbirds.  It was an amazing opportunity and we were so fortunate as the Museum was very quiet so we didn’t have to wait or queue for any of the interactive experiences.

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is an open-air gallery in West Bretton near Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England, showing work by British and international artists, including Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth .  It was especially pleasing that we were able to view the work of Angie Lewin and Mark Hearld as we will be studying their work this term. Some students practiced their photography skills to record our outing.

We stayed overnight at The Holiday Inn Express in Wakefield and cannot recommend them highly enough.  The staff welcomed our students and made sure that we enjoyed our stay.

The students were an absolute credit to their families and school and took full advantage of all activities.
