Amsterdam Trip Art and Design, Textiles, Photography
Purpose of the trip Fulfils assessment objectives for GCSE and A level View Art work first hand, record observations Gather images and ideas CREATIVE THINKING, & INSPIRATION- “ I had to try and look at the work in different ways, and to see what the artist thought or felt when they painted or made their artwork. Seeing how they used different materials. I also had inspiration from other students. ” Megan Clark
The Journey The sketchbook starts here. Creative thinking. What can be recorded? What can be used to record?
Packed Itinerary Rijks Museum Van Gogh Museum Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art Anne Frank House Rembrandt house Foam Photography Gallery Tassen Museum (handbag museum The Canal Cruise Clog and Cheese Factory and Demonstration And finally the Belgian Chocolate Shop
Rijksmuseum Dutch Art and History Famous paintings by Vermeer and Rembrandt
FLEXIBILITY- “ Throughout the trip we had to be more flexible, if we wanted to draw something at the museums where we couldn ’ t sit, or were in people ’ s way – we had to find a different way to draw eg. hold our sketchbooks on our hips, standing up, or take a photograph of it. ” Ciara Devine
Van Gogh Museum
Van Gogh FOCUSING- “ What I learned on the trip was to focus a lot, and also inspiration from the paintings and artwork there. In the Van Gogh museum you want to touch the thickness of the paint because the texture looked so amazing. ” Maysa Hasan
Conservation and Research Van Gogh paintings seen under the microscope revealed a story, techniques and materials used.
Stedelijk Modern Art Museum Recently renovated gallery showing contemporary arts in a wide range of categories. Old and new architecture working together in the new design
CREATIVE THINKING, & INSPIRATION- “ I had to try and look at the work in different ways, and to see what the artist thought or felt when they painted or made their artwork. Seeing how they used different materials. I also had inspiration from other students. ” Megan Clark
MAKING LINKS- “ This trip was inspiring as I experienced lots of different styles and influences artists use. An important skill I used was making links. I recorded lots of information about what inspired the artist, and how this is shown in their work. ” Jemima Wallis
Anne Frank Museum
MAKING LINKS, & REFLECTING- “ From the Amsterdam trip there were a lot of links to other subjects, especially in the Anne Frank museum. At the end of the day I would reflect on what I had done during the day. ” Constance Freeland
Statue of Anne Frank amongst us all INSPIRATION- “ Even if you weren ’ t in a museum, you used shop windows and buildings for inspiration. ”
Rembrandt’s House A typical Dutch interior depicted in many famous paintings.
The science of mixing paints from pure pigments demonstrated as Rembrandt would have done
PERSEVERENCE- “ When we were in the Rembrandt House I found the ink print challenging, getting the detail onto the acetate, as we had to use a knife – but I overcame this and kept going. ” Livy Goh
Foam Photography Museum Photography gallery, showing a varied exhibition of work
Exhibition of work by William Klein
Tassen Museum – museum of bags and purses
Canal cruise A great way to see Amsterdam; bridges, architecture and culture
EVOLVING WITH OTHERS- “ Throughout the trip my confidence has grown and I no longer compare myself to others as much. I overcame this at dinner when we had to show our favourite page (of our sketchbook) so far. At first I was hesitant because everyone was looking. However, in the end, I put my book on the table and I was actually quite proud of the drawing I produced. It is now my favourite piece. ” Francesca Bartlett
