Year 6 Trip to Royal Academy of Arts
On Thursday 10th March 2016, Year 6 went with Mrs. Knowles, Miss Jory and two other parents to the Royal Academy of Arts to see an exhibition named “Painting the modern Garden: from Monet to Matisse.”
Year 6 left school at ten past nine to walk to Ealing Broadway and from there, started their tube journey on the Central Line. When we reached Bond Street, Year 6 jumped onto the Jubilee Line to Green Park.
Some of the pictures in the gallery were impressions and a few were from
a more realistic point of view.
All of the artists were gardeners as well as painters, which we thought was inspiring. Some of the artists were well known to us, but some painters were introduced to us for the first time at this exhibition.
The artists included: Monet, Matisse, Renoir, Cezanne, Pissarro, Kandinsky andVan Gogh. They spanned the period of the 1860s through to the 1920s.
After the exhibition, Year 6 ate their packed lunches in Green Park and had a run around: ‘Stuck in the Mud.’
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed this trip.
What we have learnt:
• Even if you have a dream that you are pursuing, you can also enjoy other hobbies and maybe combine them.
• When you are in an art exhibition, you have to be mindful of other people.
