Aquinas Art Trip to Margate

The upper students studying Fine Art, Photography and Graphics A Level at Aquinas, went on a trip to Margate on a particularly sunny day in February.

We went to the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery, where we saw an exhibition by the artist Katie Paterson. Some of the artworks we encountered included: A mirror ball reflecting nearly every solar eclipse, a candle scented as if journeying from Earth into a Black Hole and
music bounced from the moon’s surface!

Afterwards we assembled on the beach and made cyanotypes (an old photographic process), from items we found, fixing our images in the sea – Mr. Jones was particularly proud of his result.

We finished the day by visiting a junkyard and taking photographs of discarded fairground attractions and a bear before piling back on to the minibus and heading back inland.
