Years 9 & 12 Visit the Kouvoutsakis


On September 27th, Years 9 and 12 Art pupils visited the Kouvoutsakis Art Institute. This is an art gallery in the heart of Kifissia and is one of the few in Athens that exhibits such a wide selection of Greek art from different eras. It features artwork mainly by Greek artists but there are a few foreign ones as well, like Rodin and Delacroix. Since Year 9 has been learning about still lifes in class, we each picked the still lifes that intrigued us the most and tried to replicate them in order to understand the way they were produced. This will aid us in class to create our own artwork. Year 12 also collected information by studying the paintings so that they connect their findings to their own work too. It was a very enjoyable and unique experience for all of us and we thoroughly enjoyed it!
