Emerald Class at the Tate Modern.

Recently, Emerald class went on an exciting visit to the Tate Modern museum on London’s Southbank. While visiting, we learnt lots about different artists and reflected on our ideas of art.

We were split into two groups and explored various galleries on offer to the public. Sometime we came together in the museum. When this happened, each group took it in turns to make a piece of art by using actions to alter a roll of wallpaper. It was so much fun! We got to throw the roll (carefully), rip it, twirl around with it, and even wrap ourselves up in it!

One group used their voices to make art! Our artist friend placed card on top of a speaker with dried pain on top. We were all confused about what she was doing: we’d never experienced anything like it before. She told us to take turns to speak into a microphone and, when we did, the dried paint jumped into the air! It danced around the paper as we spoke and made noises into the microphone. They were all beautiful and very abstract!

Have a look at some of the many photos we took on that fun and educational day!
