Liverpool Art Trip

In my childhood, the finest artists in my class were always the ones who excelled in copying artwork with vibrant and eye-catching colours, and I believed that until I went on this art trip.

The Tate art gallery has all sorts of contemporary and modern artwork that I simply didn’t understand, initially. Unlike the conventional art galleries, a variety of artwork from different times and cultures was introduced thoroughly with enthusiasm by the staff in Tate Liverpool, which was really kind of them and interesting to learn about. And, thanks to them, I started to understand the fact that every piece of artwork has its own cultural, historic and emotional importance.

One of my favourite pieces mocked ideas of racism and hierarchy and was very thought-provoking. Although not always typically regarded as “pretty” or perhaps colourful and appealing, a lot of artwork there was more intriguing than what I was doing, simply copying pieces.

To sum up, the trip to Liverpool was inspiring, unique and well worth attending.

Liverpool Trip – Half Term

During half term, Concord provided us with lots of trips, and one of them was a multiple museum visit in Liverpool. We were put into groups and visited different types of museums. My group went to visit the Museum of Liverpool first. There were many exhibitions of the history of Liverpool; there was another exhibition about one of the members from The Beatles, John Lennon, and his wife Yoko. I’ve heard from my friends that Tate Museum was also quite interesting. They said there was lots of variety of art and sculptures on display, and it was very cool to see the most memorable one – a display that was made of a ‘mountain’ of clothes.

The second half of the trip we went to The Beatles Museum as a whole Lower School. We got to wear headsets to listen to audios introducing each section of the exhibition. The one section that amazed me the most was a stage set up that was exactly how the Beatles would perform in a club.
