Students get a taste of The Big Apple
PUPILS from Woodroffe School have returned form an exciting fact-finding visit to “The Big Apple”.
A group of sixth formers from the Lyme comprehensive spent five days seeing the sights and visiting museums in New York, as part of their studies.
The teenagers are all involved in studying art, photography, textiles and product design.
The Empire State Building, Ellis Island, Central Park, The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan and The Guggenheim Museums were all on the itinerary.
Head of Digital Arts and trip organiser, Richard Vine said: ““With specialist status in the arts we see this trip as an essential element to our courses.
“We aim to expose the students to all aspects of art and design with visits to some of the most eminent galleries in the World. The Metropolitan features art from the last 5,000 years while both MoMA and The Guggenheim Museum both include the very best in modern and contemporary art.”
But the trip was not just all work. Students also got the chance to ride in big yellow taxis, climb the Empire State Building, eat out in Times Square and skate in Central Park.
