10 Art & Design Learning Opportunities on the Isle of Wight

Come on an Isle of Wight school trip with Education Destination, and take advantage of these learning opportunities alongside having FUN!

Isle of Wight school trip learning opportunities
  1. Mondrian Magic

    • Consider the non-representational abstract style of Piet Mondrian and find inspiration in real-life. We've started you off with the suggestion of container ships but there are many more examples out there to help develop a wide range of techniques including the use of colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space.

  2. Artistic interpretation of trees

    • Consider how popular artists such as Hockney, Klimt, Cezanne, van Gogh, Monet, Rembrandt and Constable interpreted trees as part of their landscapes and practise ones own techniques considering composition, shade, tone, colour, transitions, layering, light and texture.

  3. Advertising in Edwardian and Victorian times

    • Would you like an ideal opportunity to share with the students of today how adverts and brochures began to develop with the advent of mass travel in Victorian times, and how it has evolved through time? Considering not just the design, but also the language used? The Steam Railway is like a huge time capsule, full of materials from times gone by.

  5. Considering camouflage

  6. Write to persuade - themed advertising campaigns

    • Blackgang Chine is the UK's oldest theme park, and has lots of themed areas within, from fairy-tales to dinosaurs, traditional hedge mazes to thrill rides. Using the park and existing materials as stimulus, challenge students to come up with new advertising campaigns.

  7. Seascapes as 3D paper sculptures

    • Inspired by the works of Sarah Bridgland and Sarah Morris, observe various seascapes on your Isle of Wight journey - this could include natural features such as harbours, spits or cliffs, or man-made features such as marinas, buildings, boats or ships - then back at school develop 3D paper sculptures thereof.
