Whitworth Art Gallery

From teacher of English Ms Ribbons: “Last Wednesday, a group of Year 9 students went on a trip to the Whitworth Art Gallery, as part of a project      designed to develop their creative writing using art. The day was specifically designed to help them develop engaging and imaginative characters. In the morning, they looked at the ‘Outsider Art’ collection in groups and shared their interpretations with the rest of the class, before analysing a large piece of artwork in the gallery as a class. In the afternoon, they tried to draw characters and faces out of shapes – but without taking their pens off the page! When they were done, they had to consider the type of character they had created and annotate their images with adjectives to describe their character and appearance. The project will continue in lessons and at the Whitworth for the rest of the term, focusing on areas such as ‘setting’ and ‘emotions’. The characters they created last week will be then written into their own pieces of story writing.”
