Trip to Saltaire

This week Year 2 went on a school trip to Saltaire as part of our Art learning all about the artist David Hockney. We had explored some of his work previously in lessons and particularly focused on his painting of the Salts Mill. As we walked around Saltaire we looked closely to find the different geographical features that Hockney had included in his painting and compared the picture with reality. We noticed that he had changed a lot of the colours, as well as the positioning of different buildings and roads.

We were amazed when we got to see Hockney’s painting in real life – surprised by how large it was and how much more colourful it looked.

We also squeezed in a quick sketch of the bandstand in the park before having lunch and enjoying some games. What a fun day out it was!
