Sixth-Form Trip to the Queen's Gallery

The sixth-form art and textiles pupils visited the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace last week, to attend a two-hour life-drawing lesson. They produced some fantastic work and were highly praised by the tutor for their positive attitude.

Based on Leonardo Da Vinci’s drawings, whose work was on display in the gallery, the girls worked through a series excessives to encourage accurate and considered representations of the human form. This culminated in a pose reminiscent of ‘The Vitruvian Man’, a drawing that outlines the ideal proportions of the human form and makes reference to the ideals of classical architecture.
