Through Turner’s Telescope Exhibition Project
Year 5 have taken part in 3 workshops with Turner’s House. For the first workshop, we visited Turner’s House in Twickenham to learn about the history of the house and Turner’s time in Twickenham, as well as contemporary artists that have been inspired by Turner. We created abstract watercolour paintings inspired by the colours of one of Turner’s paintings.
In the second session back at school, the pupils worked with local artist Tahira Mandarino to create monoprints of aspects of Turner’s House.
In our final session, we made landscape collages and oil pastel pictures inspired by Turner’s works and set up our own exhibition of all our work in the classroom.
