Year 8 Trip to Bangkok Sculpture Center

Last week students in Year 8 visited the Bangkok Sculpture Center, situated close to Ramindra road. This is our second ‘carousel’ visit. Students gathered visual and written research to support their current project that focuses on the modernist art movement of Cubism.

It is widely believed that Italian artist Corrado Feroci (Silpa Bhirasri) brought Western style modern art to Thailand. He was instrumental in the founding of today's Silpakorn University. Bangkok Sculpture Center holds work by Feroci, as well as housing his bronze portrait by Sanan Silakorn, pictured here (he is the one on the right).

Our students found the wide range of styles and genres very inspiring and it was a real pleasure to watch them engage with drawing and investigating different pieces. With such a variety of impressive work on display, the teachers were often challenged to answer which their favourite pieces were. It was also a great pleasure to see our students asking our guide difficult questions about the exhibits.
