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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
