SCHOOL trips have inspired Wrexham art students at a Chester school.
The sixth formers of The Queen’s School have visited Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the Royal Academy to help them produce work for their A-level studies.
Parents, governors and friends of the school were invited to a private view of the Year 12 and 13 students’ work and were impressed by the quality and originality of the art pieces on show.
Head of art, Alistair Tucker, said: “Art is a very enjoyable subject, but it requires a lot of dedication and commitment to create a body of work that can achieve a good grade. The girls have worked extremely hard.”
The students used a variety of media including etching, drypoint, monotype, drawing, painting, photography and collage. They found their inspiration in the world around them, exploring topics such as autobiography, links and connections and transposition.
