The Year 10 went to visit one of the most famous art institutions for post-graduate study in the world. We took over the entire top deck of the N0.19 and went see the Painting and Sculpture at the Dyson building in Battersea and then made the long walk back to the Kensington Gore site where we saw vehicle design and other forms of interactive design. It was a good opportunity to see where the culmination of the study of art practice can take you if you choose to follow this pathway. Whilst a very difficult world to thrive in, the RCA is one of the best springboards as well as Goldsmiths’, The Slade and the University of the Arts also in London to start a career in the visual arts.
The pupils in most cases found the work fun and challenging and really enjoyed the more informal presentation of the work as opposed to a commercial gallery or museum.
