AS Art students had a very productive visit to Roche Court Sculpture Park and Salisbury Cathedral in November. The trip provided a great opportunity for the students to draw from primary source material. They were given an insightful guided tour from a very engaging and enthusiastic curator. She spoke in depth to the students about the work in the gardens as well as the interior viewing spaces. Students broadened their contextual awareness and subject knowledge as well as practising their drawing skills. Later on we visited Salisbury Cathedral, the eclectic range of decorative preferences stretching over hundreds of years was very interesting to witness, in particular the contemporary font designed by William Pye has caused much contention and certainly gave these creative minds something to think about. The trip was educational and very enjoyable thanks to the superb behaviour and enthusiasm shown by the students.
