Easter Island Inspiration in Exeter
Year 8 enjoyed an inspirational trip to Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter, this week studying both Pacific/Oceanic art and the geology of Devon.
Drawing upon the museum’s expansive collection of Pacific artefacts, students had the opportunity enhance their studies into the art of this area. They drew Oceanic pieces including head dresses & costumes, tools, models of canoes, masks and more. In class, the focus has been upon the naïve art of Easter Island and the students have been drawing and modelling the iconic heads.
As part of their geographical studies, pupils also visited the Down to Earth galleries to view rock formation and the geology of Devon, which is also exhibited at the museum. No visit to the museum could be complete without popping to see the iconic 12 foot model of Gerald the giraffe.
