GOMA visit becomes reality
JAMES Nash State High students recently went on an excursion to the Gallery of Modern Art to look at the exhibition and in doing so, further their art education.
This annual excursion to Southbank, Brisbane happens to coincide with the Matisse "Drawing Life" exhibition being shown at the gallery.
Excursion co-ordinator, arts teacher Janine Delgos said the trip is important for the students as they see past artwork in reality that is centuries old which is extremely beneficial to their art education and Visual Art studies as they get to examine it firsthand instead of just looking at it in a book.
GOMA is always exciting for the students, as the themes and exhibitions change annually and as a result, every year the students get to experience something new.
The students were excited, enthusiastic and inquisitive as they explored the gallery full of modern art as well as the activities they did such as life drawing, iPad connectivity and experiencing a variety of exhibition.
Overall, each student came back with something to remember from the exhibition and they had loads of fun on the day.
