Rothesay Academy Pupils Visit Kelvingrove Art Gallery On Monday the 19th of January S3 and S4 Art and Design students from Rothesay Academy visited the Kelvingrove Art Galleries in Glasgow. It was a fantastic day out taking in the splendour of one of Glasgow’s most magnificent and best loved buildings bathed, as it was, in glorious winter sunshine!
The students studied the work of the Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists in the morning, feeding directly into their National courses. In the afternoon they became poets, as each responded in prose to a work by the Scottish artist and writer Alasdair Gray during their visit to his major exhibition which is on until the end of February. The pupils returned with new insight into the working methods and motivations of artists they are studying in class. A great result!
