Year 10 – Estorick Workshop and Tate Britain Visit:
Ms Hudson helps introduce the practical workshop at the
Estorick Collection of Modern Itailian Art

Students begin the workshop by making a number of
carefully observed studies from the Futurist’s works on display.
Following this, the students start designing their own Thaumatrope;
combining two drawings influenced by the collection.  

The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art opened in London in 1998. Its new home – a Grade II listed Georgian building – was restored with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and contains six galleries, an art library, cafe and bookshop. The Collection is known internationally for its core of Futurist works, as well as figurative art and sculpture dating from 1890 to the 1950s.

It features paintings by Futurism’s main protagonists: Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Gino Severini, Luigi Russolo and Ardengo Soffici as well as works by Giorgio de Chirico, Amedeo Modigliani, Giorgio Morandi, Mario Sironi and Marino Marini.
