The trip started off by looking at some original Banksy’s down Park Street if only to fill time as we were early. Once inside Bristol Museum Art Gallery the girls looked at a variety of works both past and present but were particularly engaged by the Art on show in particular work by Frank Auerbach and Damian Hirst. The girls then visited the Royal Academy to see an exhibition called “Drawn” which was an open exhibition of drawings by artists across the country. They enjoyed this show more as “there was a greater variety of artist work on show and it was also more contemporary” .They particularly enjoyed the “drawing lab” where they got to create drawings using a variety of techniques and media which included an old Olivetti typewriter which was great fun for the girls to use. As part of the exhibition there was also on display a selection of drawings from the Royal Collection and Nikol especially enjoyed the story of Antony Blunt the spy who was the Royal Art Historian and whose name was stamped on some of the frames.

All in all a very enlightening morning of culture.
