We have had a lovely day visiting the Salts Mill Gallery in Saltaire to see David Hockney’s new exhibition of ipad paintings.
We were very lucky to see a lot of his other works in the main gallery before we went upstairs to the new exhibition. Some of them we had looked at and discussed during our lessons, so it was very exciting to see the original pieces.
In the new exhibition we looked at all the work and were very interested in the slide show at the end, where we saw all his pictures and images that he had produced on his iphone or ipad to send to his family and friends. We decided which pictures and images were our favourites and explained why. Then we also talked about what techniques we needed to use to enhance our own ipad work, which we started in school yesterday.
All the children were incredibly well behaved, as usual, and were a delight to take out.
Have a look at the gallery below and see which pictures you like!
