Visit to The National Portrait Gallery

What a fantastic end to the year. Pupils from Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 had the opportunity to attend an extended practice workshop at The National Portrait Gallery.

The workshop included Cindy Sherman’s new exhibition which focuses on the artist’s manipulation of her own appearance and her deployment of material derived from a range of cultural sources, including film, advertising and fashion.  Sherman explores the tension between façade and identity.

Pupils then went on to use this as inspiration in the practical activities.
