All Hallows art scholars were very excited to visit the Holburne Museum this week to see two exhibitions in order to enhance background preparation for their scholarship portfolios.

Firstly 'Rodin: rethinking the fragment' explored how Rodin was inspired by ancient Greek and Roman sculptures. Pupils studied and discussed 'The Thinker' and explored an array of different pieces in the collection, then took part in a figure drawing workshop learning exciting and challenging ways to explore line and tone. Pupils learnt how to analyse the model's pose and to recognise its most important elements from which to begin their work. This practice of analysis and evaluation will also have benefits for other subjects and disciplines.

Secondly, the scholars were privileged to view one of the nation's most loved paintings by David Hockey, Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy, which is also one of Britain's greatest portraits. It was a firm favourite by the scholars and the students came away very inspired by all they had seen.
