Visit to Matisse Exhibition
Visit to Hitchin
On Friday 5th May we took a group of students to visit the Matisse exhibition in Hitchin Town. The exhibition is linked to the Hayward Gallery (London) touring exhibition programme and whilst the students have been studying the artist Matisse and his style of work and in particular, the cut outs it made an impression on them to see them for real. There were 35 prints of his cut-outs at the exhibition which also included a video on a large screen which explained about his life and his art. Then we went upstairs and each student made a badge using the cut-out technique, some students made badges for members of staff.
