A Level Art Trip to St Ives

Thursday 2nd February 2017

It was on a rather wet and windy Friday that 13 A Level Art Students set off by train for the distant shores of St Ives on the Cornish Riviera as reported by our Head of Art, Ms Beales.

“Half a day later we arrived and installed ourselves in a lovely hostel right in the centre of this very pretty town where we saw seals, lots of seagulls and shops closed for the winter session. On our first full day, we visited the magical Barbara Hepworth Museum where we sketched her magnificent sculptures. We then headed up to the Bernard Leach Museum that housed the actual pottery where Leach made many of his famous pieces. Everyone tried their luck on the pottery wheels (well done, Mr Pain!) before we headed back to base for a fish and chip supper. The next day we spent with a local artist who took us out in to the rain to sketch and photograph St Ives in its full winter glory. The rest of the day was spent back at the hostel working with what we had gathered. On our final morning, we checked out the local galleries and pasty bakeries before we headed back to Reading, exhausted but totally inspired.”
