Van Gogh Alive for Art students
This term our A-level Art students had the opportunity to journey through Van Gogh Alive, the world famous immersive exhibition. This innovative and inspiring experience, which transforms every surface into a multi-sensory display of over 3,000 images, enabled students to fully immerse themselves in the work and life of Van Gogh, helping develop their understanding of the artist’s work and energise their learning and subject choice.
Said Sixth Form students Erin-May Hart-Royle and David Edwards: “On the 10th of November, Year 13 A-level Art students visited ‘Van Gogh Alive’ at MediaCity to develop an understanding for his work and his life as a whole, including the deterioration of his mental health which led to him producing some of the world’s most famous artwork that we see today.
The experience breaks with the traditional museum concept and introduced us fully into a painter’s universe with the use of vibrant symphonies of colour and sound. We were even able to attempt our own Van Gogh drawing.
We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would highly recommend to anyone wishing to visit.”
