Art Trip to Roche Court 2012

ireland and school 073
The Art GCSE group spent a day at the new Art Centre, Roche Court. It represents the Estates of Barbara Hepworth, Kenneth Armitage and Ian Stephenson and shows 20th and 21st Century sculptures in the spectacular Wiltshire countryside. There are works on exhibition from 1950 to the present day including sculptures by Antony Gormley, Richard Long, Anthony Caro and Barry Flanagan.
In the morning the students were given a guided tour of the sculpture park and took part in various drawing exercises. At times the rain poured down but it didn’t dampen the spirits of the inspired Art students. The afternoon was spent inside the warm Art studio producing work from Anthony Caro’s Relief sculptures.
