Year 8 Art Trip

On 18th June, 14 Year 8 students enjoyed a tour around the new Leeds Art University building. The University offers further and higher education and has lots of studios. The group spoke to current students, saw the state-of-the-art facilities and listened to Miss Ahmed talking about her studies whilst at the University. We had a preview of the Undergraduate end of year show, which included contemporary art, animation, illustration, graphic design, film, fashion, textiles, creative advertising and photography from students across 15 courses. Our students were inspired by the different specialisms within art and design and look forward to using mixed media skills in their upcoming projects.

Students spoke highly of the work and Alissia said:

“I really loved the art trip because it inspired me to get more into art and design. I loved walking round seeing different things; e.g. fashion, textiles, sculptures etc. Along with wanting to do art, I am also looking at wanting to go to that university. The university is really big, creative, detailed and a big influence for young people”.
