A-level Fine Art students take a trip to the Tate

A-level Fine Art students from Hugh Baird College’s South Sefton Campus further enhanced their studies as they recently took a trip to explore art collections at the Walker, Open Eye and Tate Art Gallery.

Having soaked up the array of skills and techniques on display at the different exhibitions, the students sketched inside and outside the galleries to build on their skills and portfolio.

Katy Evans, A-level Art and Design student said:

I enjoyed seeing all of the different styles of artwork and researching into our favourite pieces. We spent a lot of time looking around and analysing the artwork to get a more in-depth idea of how Walker, Open Eye and Tate created their work.

Hugh Baird College’s A-level Fine Art course gives students the opportunity to discover their strengths and develop visual skills using a variety of materials and techniques.

Lauren McInerney, A-level Fine Art Tutor at Hugh Baird College said:

The trip to the local art galleries is typical of the added value experiences we provide our A-level students. We are very fortunate to have such incredible collections, galleries, events and creative communities on our doorstep in Liverpool. Visiting local and national Galleries not only enriches the students’ understanding of Artists, artworks and techniques but also inspires their own works.
