A Level Graphic Design and Computer Science pupils enjoyed a fantastic Art & Design packed day in London at the V&A. Pupils visited the 'Videogames Design/Disrupt', 'Fashioned from Nature', 'The future starts here' and 'Frida Kahlo: Making herself up' exhibitions. In spite of the Saturday morning 7am early start, with a train cancellation and a train delay on the return to Lincoln, pupils and staff arrived at the V&A in time for their booked slots and, with the help of a replacement coach, all were returned to Lincoln in one piece before midnight!
It was a day full of thought-provoking and exciting Art & Graphics. In spite of the rainy weather, the trip decided to stop off to enjoy the “Feed the Lions” installation in Trafalgar Square, as part of the London Design Festival. The city of London did not disappoint, buzzing with exhibits and visitors enjoying the Design Events. A heart-warming visit from one of the school leavers, now living and studying in London, made the experience even more unforgettable.
Alicia Corral, teacher of Art and graphics, who led the trip said:
"For our pupils it has been a once in a lifetime experience to enjoy such a vast range of exhibits and installations under one roof. It was a long tiring day, but definitely worth it."
