A group of children visited Tate Modern today, to take part in a brilliant artist-led session exploring our senses. Jess took us in to the old oil tanks first of all. It has art in, but it is also an excellent place to explore our voices and listening to them echo around the space. It was very loud! Next we went upstairs to explore touch through a wall of carpet made by artsist, Rudolf Stingel. Then we visited a gallery with circles of light changing colours by artist, Peter Sedgley; we used torches and coloured gel to explore the colours even more.
After lunch we thought about how we were feeling after looking at all the different art works, and made our own costumes to express those feelings. We were feeling happy, so we made happy costumes and had a parade around the Tubine Hall. It was lots of fun!
