Art and photography students recently visited Barcelona. Students explored the Gothic Quarter, drawing from observation and gathering source material, photographing the side streets and urban graffiti found in the city. Students were able to start thinking about their current exam theme and sketch and photograph from direct observation. 

One day was spent exploring Antoni Gaudi. Students were exposed to all Gaudi’s great architecture and amazing designs. Students took a trip up to the top hills of Barcelona to Parc Guell where students took rubbings of the mosaics, tiles, drawing the patterns found and unique structures inspired by nature. They also visited the phenomenal Sagrada Familia (new cathedral) which is still being built today, and has taken over 100 years to get to its current state. Students could observe the fascinating structures and carved stone which again was inspired by nature, and the stained glass inside which created opulent patterns. 

On the final day, students explored the beach area, again thinking about how they can develop their current art projects. After having free time for shopping and tapas, students headed back home.
