Virtual Gallery Visits

At this time of the Year, our GCSE and A level Art students would be embarking on our annual educational tour of the galleries in London to support their investigations into their portfolios and their externally set assignments. Due to COVID-19, the galleries whose doors had to close have made their collections available virtually. Most galleries across the world have collaborated with Google Arts and Culture to provide 360 degree tours of their exhibitions along with their main collections.

Last week, our students were set the task of visiting some of these galleries virtually and documenting their visit. The results are outstanding and has hopefully provide the students with some inspiration and motivation to keep working whilst at home. Hopefully our annual visits to Cardiff and London may resume safely in the Autumn term along with any preparations for approved overseas visits.
