Seeing art in new light
Pupils from Cathkin High enjoyed an art attack when they paid a trip to Glasgow Tramway.
Twenty art and design students were there to see the nominees for the Turner Prize.
Their day of culture started at the Gallery of Modern Art, where they analysed pieces of contemporary artwork and collated their research and analysis in a sketchbook.
In the afternoon the group visited the Tramway for a workshop that introduced them to the processes behind creating a prize-winning contemporary artwork.
Clair Cathro of S5 said:“It was really interesting and I enjoyed seeing artwork that was so different from what I normally see.”
Teacher Lisa Johnston added:“It was a very worthwhile trip, which the pupils enjoyed.
“It was informative, interactive and relevant to their studies. It allowed the pupils to get first-hand experience of analysing pieces of contemporary art in a gallery space.
“The tour of the Turner Prize was excellent as the pupils got to view the exhibits and learn about the concepts behind the pieces, which was inspiring.”
