Gallery tour Autumn 2014

As my part of my day job I organise a 4 day Art Study Trip for A level Art students. This year we went to Manchester, Liverpool and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, among other places.

We saw a fabulous selection of artwork; here are some favourite drawings and prints,  Apologies for the reflections in the glass.

Manchester City Gallery's show 'The Sensory War' is a moving collection of imagery from 1914 to 2014.

Spohie Jodoin's haunting metamorphosed drawings

Seeing Kollwitz prints at first hand was a real treat

The Imperial war Museum North showed a great picture show of childhood experiences of war.

Ursula von Rydingsvard's drawings at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

It was a thoroughly inspiring few days.
Now I need to get sketching, I need to make a piece of work to go into a joint teachers and students exhibition...
