See­ing art in new light

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.”
