Art and Design field trip, Bawdsey, Suffolk 2021
Finally after a long two-year wait, the annual art trip to Suffolk was able to go ahead on Friday 22 Ocotber, staying at beautiful Bawdsey Manor.
Y13 Students in their final year took full advantage of the excellent weather to add to their personal studies with a series of first hand and observational visits to heritage sites and maritime locations. They were also able to see the work of influential well established artists: works by Henry Moore, Maggie Hambling and the Britten Pears concert halls at Snape added to ‘arts in the community’ experiences.
A highlight was Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich where the “World of Stories” reflected on the arrival in June 1948 of the Empire Windrush, and the cultural diversity of Ipswich. Students will be working towards a visual presentation in November.
I would like to personally thank Mrs Hadlow and Aimee Andrew from Robert Mays School who were fantastic in supporting and facilitating the smooth running of the trip.
