Accompanied by Miss Curran, Year 13 and 14 Art and Design students visited the Royal Ulster Academy in the Ulster Museum last week. The exhibition was filled with amazing fine art pieces by local artists, including paintings, drawings, print-making, ceramics, short films, animation, installations and 3D sculptures. Pupils noted the current trend for Hyper-realist portraits and oversized paintings. The experience has really inspired pupils to bring some of the ideas and techniques into their own projects and given them ideas about how to display their artwork.
