Light and Dark

Pupils see how artists have used light and dark to create drama and affect our emotions. Moving through the gallery, they experience the impact of a black space and the optical effect of bright lights. They enter am atmospheric old theatre to become shadow hunters and explore the changing mood from dappled light to a dark cave. Collecting ideas and recording their experiences along the way they make shadow sticks which are used to create a world of light and dark.
