Art session at National Portrait Gallery: BP Portrait Award Exhibition
We had our third Taster Session today, working with Learning Freelancers Sadie Lee, Marc Woodhead and Robin-Lee Hall Hall and Guest BP artists Ray Richardson, James Hague and Alan Coulson. We explored drawing techniques in the BP Portrait Award exhibition and shared our ideas.
I travelled again to London and took part in this Taster Session. I always love the range of portraits on display, from professional to amateur. In the session today we looked at different portraits and spoke to artists exhibiting in the gallery. It was so interesting and fun!! We made different drawings and it really made me love portraiture. The whole day was inspiring and insightful.

Henri Matisse at Tate Modern
Loved this Henri Matisse exhibition at Tate Modern. It has so many of his colourful collages collected in particular themed rooms. Matisse started producing his cut-outs, instead of painting, after he became older and less able to move as much. He would cut out these shapes, in particular the seaweed looking shapes, in a curved motion to make the shapes 3D.
