Land Art at Margitsziget

The sun shone on our Year 7 trip this year to Margitsziget. Students tried a variety of different drawing and art activities in a carousel of  ‘en plein air’ fun! For some, it was the first time they had some of the materials or tried colours in this way. By the end of the trip, the Year 7s had filled their colourful booklets with sketches and drawings and the day ended with a collaborative ‘Land Art’  activity where students gathered and arranged items from the park in a composition beneath the trees. We viewed each completed composition and groups shared the ideas behind each one.

Artists paint and draw outside, ‘en plein air’, as a way of refreshing their approach and to give their work the energy and freshness of the outdoors.

Emma: “I enjoyed drawing peacefully in the sun.”

Oliver: “I enjoyed drawing with the oil pastels when we had to draw with the big bold colours.” (The ‘Fauves’ or ‘Wild beasts’ were a group or 20th Century artists famous for using very bright non-naturalistic colour in their landscapes.)
