Year 12 Art and Graphics Trip to Kew Gardens

At the end of the summer term, Year 12 Art and Graphics students ventured to Kew Gardens for a full day of recording from observation. The morning was filled with pacey workshops in The Tropical House, The Hive and at the newly renovated Temperate House. They also squeezed in a visit to see the Botanical Illustrations on display at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery.

Students built on the skills from the workshops and spent the afternoon developing an individual sustained piece at a location of their choice.  All students were fantastic and fully engaged in every opportunity that was thrown at them.
