Year 10 BTEC Art and Design pupils were given the opportunity to visit the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff. Pupils have just been introduced to a new assignment 'Distorted Portraits' and have to gather primary evidence to support the development of self portraits they will produce on canvas. We were lucky enough to attend workshops with Eleri Evans who specifically put a presentation together at the museum to give our pupils insight into portraits in general. Pupils were then given time to sketch relevant artists' work such as the beautiful Augustus John portraits before having time to look around and experience the rest of the museum. All pupils enjoyed the workshops and fully engaged in the tasks of collecting primary evidence with sketching and photographs throughout the museum.
