Study day at Tate Britain

Jim Cowan, course leader for Fine Art, will be running a study day at Tate Britain in London on Saturday 2 July. This is not an exhibition specific visit but rather, an exploration of the wonderful new display in the gallery. He will focus on key works of Modern British Art putting them in context and emphasising the importance of sketchbooks and log book annotation.

The National Collection contains paintings, drawings prints, sculpture as well as the newer media of video, installation, photography and performance. It shows the evolution of styles and subject matter in Britain from 1911 to the present day.
Students are asked to do some independent research on one or two of the decades of their choice in the time period covered in the gallery to contribute to the discussion on the day. Bring a sketchbook in order to record and annotate information as there will be an opportunity to draw within the Gallery.

The visit is suitable for all Art and Design and History of Art students at OCA. In order to book onto this event (we are limiting the numbers to 15) please contact enquiries@oca-uk.com. Places are on a first come first serve basis. We will be meeting outside the main entrance to Tate Britain at 10.00am and the day will finish at 4.00pm.

  • Hi!
    I would very much like to attend the Study Day, as I live in London too it is not too difficult to get to for me! How much does it cost?

    • HI Polly, it doesn’t cost anything other than the cost of getting yourself there. To get registered, just call the office and leave your details, I look forward to seeing you there.

  • Hopefully I will be able to attend this Study Day. I think it would benefit me greatly to go and meet other students too!

    • Hi Charmaine, just call the office to register your interest, and then you will get sent all the details of the day.
