The World of Stanley Spencer
Year 12 Art and Photography students were joined by the Art and Digital Art Year 10 Curriculum Leaders on a journey through the eyes of world renowned artist Stanley Spencer. Students spent the day at The Stanley Spencer Gallery in Cookham for a gallery lecture, guided tour around Cookham and then recreated some of Spencer's famous artworks.
The students particularly enjoyed walking in Stanley Spencer's footsteps and did lots of sketching and photography while they were out and about. The talk about his work in the gallery was really stimulating and gave the students lots of ideas on how to create their own work.
The trip was sponsored by The Art Society Chilterns, who have worked very closely with the Art Department for a number of years now. We are privileged to have their support and encouragement for the success of our students.
