year 10 go to Bowes

Mrs Swales’ year 10 GCSE English group visited Bowes Museum last week to take part in a creative writing and printing workshop.  We looked at the portrait gallery, chose a painting to study and made some notes about the character.  Now we are back in school we are writing a creative piece based on the portrait.  After lunch we tried ‘dry point’ printing which was a new experience for everyone and we used the portraits we had looked at for inspiration.  We had a fantastic day and are fired up to produce some excellent creative writing.
