Folkestone Triennial Art Trip

On the 2nd of November the Art department took all the 6th form Art & Photography students to explore the last day of the Folkestone Triennial.

The Triennial is Creative Folkestone’s flagship event.  Artworks adorn the town and residents and visitors are encouraged to explore Folkestone.  The theme is The Plot and there are three main strands to this theme.  Artists have been invited by curator Lewis Biggs from across the world to exhibit in the town.  There are 23 artists contributing to the 2021 Triennial.

The students had the opportunity to follow planned routes around the three trails in the morning. The students all took sketchbooks with them to record from first hand and the photography students had the opportunity for some focused technical exercises around the Harbour. Some of the exhibiting artist were able to talk with the students about their current practices when we visited them in the small independent galleries that were dotted around the town.

Many found relevant artist to inspire and inform their current projects and personal investigations. It provided a fantastic opportunity for the students to have some focused 1:1 support over the day whilst working from a range of different first-hand sources. The day was a big success and many students will continue to develop this work once back in school.

The trip was expertly led and organised by Ms. Livermore. We were very  fortunate with the weather with the sun out for most of the day. We can’t wait to return for the next Triennial in 3 year’s time!
