A Level Art Trip to St Ives

Thursday 14th February 2019

From Friday 25 to Monday 28 January, our A level art students took a trip to the scenic and refreshing town of St Ives, in Cornwall.


This residential weekend of creativity, inspiration and all things art included a visit to the Barbara Hepworth Museum, the Tate St Ives, and had a day of sketching by the sea with artist Greg Humphries.


In true artistic fashion, let our photos of the weekend speak for themselves!
