Chestnut & Sycamore Trip to the Hayward Gallery and National Gallery

DSC 0094Chestnut & Sycamore, 13th January National Gallery & Bridget Riley special exhibition at the Haywood gallery Trip report. The children had a smooth train ride into London and down the Northern line to Leicester Square and the National Gallery.  There they were taken to look at 3 paintings in some detail, doing inventive and very engaging drawing and thinking exercises in a very well led set of mini-workshops. After lunch they had a scenic walk across the Thames seeing St Pauls and the Shard amongst other buildings on the London skyline, with very good behaviour and sensible movement on the footway before arriving at the Haywood gallery. The very striking and effective Optical art by Bridget Riley certainly got their attention  with lots of discussion of "how does that do that?" and quite observant comments about the wide range of visual effects being demonstrated. A straightforward train return on booked seats allowed thinking and conversation about the work with an enjoyable time had by all.
