Art pupils study in Seville

Posted In Creative

On Friday 15th February a group of pupils studying A level Art, Photography, Textiles and Music departed for the sunnier climate of Seville, Spain. We began by exploring some of the incredible historical sites such as the Cathedral and Giralda, The Plaza de Espana, and the Real Palace Alcazar, which have been locations for TV and film shoots such as Star Wars and Game of Thrones.

We visited the historical city of Cordoba and contrasted this with the modern architecture of the ‘Las Setas’ structure. These were all fantastic locations for capturing brilliant photographs and soaking up the visual inspiration. We had an unforgettable experience at a Flamenco show, where the music pupils were impressed at the skill and performance of the dancers and musicians. It is truly amazing how much sound can be created by footsteps and clapping!

Another highlight was renting bikes through Marie Luisa Park which provided some respite from all the walking. Overall, a beautiful city and an amazing experience for staff and pupils alike!
