Art and Design BTEC students were taken to Oxford to explore the yellow stone architecture and the jumbled, shadowy displays of Pitt Rivers Museum.
The first year students were inspired by the different cultures and the eclectic collection of the museum and were able to record these through a range of different techniques and mark making skills within illustration and painting.
The weather stayed dry with the occasional glimpse of sunshine, whilst the students were able to wonder, photograph and draw from the city’s diverse architectural styles from Gothic Revival to English Baroque. Their photographs and drawings will be used as a basis for continued workshop development that encourage more independent and creative thinking in preparation for their second-year studies and the ongoing building of their own portfolios for applications.
All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day trip out and produced some promising pieces of artwork.
