On Wednesday 6th September, seniors from the Art and Design department visited the DCA. The experience at the venue saw pupils working alongside others schools in the community of Dundee, analysing artworks and sharing their own responses on paintings both weird and wonderful. One of the seniors commented that the event “helped with new vocabulary and understanding how to talk about different artworks”, whilst another said the visit to Dundee Contemporary Arts on the Perth road “helped me learn how to describe and analyse paintings and design. This will help me in my final exam and make my responses more sophisticated”. Visiting the gallery space, pupils worked with and beside their peers, bringing back some exciting discussions about the artwork on display back to the classroom that afternoon.

Seniors can continue their practice (both practical and critical) in the department at lunchtimes and evening study support sessions.
