Sixth Formers Explore National Portrait Gallery

On Friday 19 January 2018 Sixth Form Photography students and Upper Sixth Art students took the scenic M40 route down to London to visit the National Portrait Gallery. 

Photography students visited the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize Exhibition whilst the Art students visited the Cezanne Portraits Exhibition. That day the gallery was filled with portrait lovers just like us. I found it so interesting to see others sketching Cezanne portraits just as I was and the atmosphere it created was definitely a highlight. Before leaving we got to explore around the gallery, finding gorgeous architecture, sculptures and photographs.

After adventuring around we found the downstairs café where we stocked up on coffee and snacks before our long coach ride back home. It was a fun day out and an inspirational trip that will help start the preparation for our A-level exam.
