An Inspiring Visit to Kew Gardens

Year 10 GCSE Art pupils spent a day at Kew Gardens to get their creativity flowing for their GCSE art portfolios.

Whilst at Kew, they visited the Palm House, which is home to exotic plants from the rainforest as well as the Hive, a spectacular piece of architecture designed in the shape of honeycombs.  They also explored some greenhouses containing elegant plants and cacti and witnessed some amazing views atop of the Treetop Walkway which is 18 metres above the ground.

Despite the unfortunate weather, the pupils had an extremely enjoyable day.  They left feeling truly inspired with some initial sketches and a variety of photos to help them progress their portfolios.
