Once In A Lifetime Opportunity To View David Hockney Exhibition

An incredibly lucky 41 Princethorpe College Year 10 Art pupils had a once in a lifetime chance last Wednesday 3 May when they visited the Tate Britain in London to view the David Hockney Exhibition.

David Hockney is one of the most popular and influential British artists of the twentieth century and this comprehensive exhibition includes an extensive selection of his most famous works across the last six decades and includes some that have never been seen before.

We are immensely grateful to the Tate who went out of their way to enable our school group to visit this special, much sought after exhibition. It is never too early to get into visiting art galleries; the visit will provide invaluable inspiration for them as they work on their controlled assessments.

Libbi Ancill-Griffiths and Charlotte Khan said, “It was a real privilege to visit the David Hockney exhibition, along with the rest of the GCSE Art Group. With limited traffic, we breezed into London and straight to the museum. The Tate is an endless maze of beautiful paintings which gave us lots of inspiration for our future coursework portfolios.”

Head of Art, Paul Hubball was truly thrilled to see a David Hockney exhibition once again and he commented, “I’ve waited 30 years to see a retrospective of his work and I’m sure we’ll all remember this trip in the years to come.”
