Year 7 artastic trip to Eastbourne
On Thursday 15 November Year 7 went to Eastbourne on an Art trip. When we arrived at Eastbourne College we met Adrian who showed us the fabulous sports hall, the spacious gym and the amazing swimming pool on the way to the incredible dining room. The food was displayed in a buffet style canteen. We could choose from three different meals and delicious desserts. After lunch we walked to the Towner Art Gallery. We saw three different exhibitions; 'Everyday Objects', as well as 'Art' by Simon Ling and Hannah Gush, which featured a large-scale dynamic sound sculpture made out of thin copper acting like a mirror, which distorted your body. The three exhibitions were on different floors, which we used a giant elevator to get to. The reason it was so large was that it could enable the transport of large pieces of artwork as well as visitors. We spent some time sketching a few of the artworks in the exhibition.
At two o’clock we made our way back to Eastbourne College for a ceramics workshop. We spent two hours making cupcakes, cake slices, mugs and sauces and decorating them using piping. All the ceramics will be displayed in the Rose Hill School dining room in the future. We glazed some of the work. Once all the work is fired by the art department we will have them returned to us. Mrs Moore had a surprise visit from her niece who is a pupil at the college. Once we finished ceramics we received a goodie bag with snacks, pencils and a slap band. We all thoroughly enjoyed this art trip.

On Thursday, 9 November Year 7 went on an Art trip to the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne. After a bus journey to Eastbourne College we had a delicious lunch in their canteen. We then walked a short distance to the Towner Gallery which is located right next to the College. It wasn’t hard to miss as there was an amazing mural painted on the side of the building, in all sorts of shapes and colours, celebrating the Towner’s 10th Anniversary.
