Brushing Up on Inspiration: Art Adventure in Oxford
Our Year Eleven artists recently enjoyed a site visit to Oxford, a city brimming with history, culture, and inspiration.
At the Ashmolean Museum, pupils were transported through time, encountering an eclectic array of treasures spanning from the relics of ancient Egypt to the cutting-edge world of contemporary printmaking. Each exhibit offered a tapestry of ideas for pupils to weave into their artistic endeavours.
After a quick tour of some of the sights of ‘The City of Dreaming Spires’ our pupils visited the Museum of Natural History and The Pitt Rivers Museum. Amidst the vast collections of specimens and curiosities, they absorbed the intricacies of the natural world and the diverse cultures that inhabit it, capturing inspiration through sketches and photographs.
Returning to School, pupils were brimming with newfound inspiration. As they embark on their GCSE examination project, we eagerly anticipate witnessing the evolution of their ideas, as they transform their experiences into artworks.
