Italian Art Trip


Members of Kingsbury High School’s Art Department, Mr Taylor, Ms Ferguson and Mr Knight, accompanied 12 Sixth Form students on an art trip to Florence and Siena.

The main aim of the trip was to broaden students’ knowledge of Italian lifestyle, culture and art with a particular emphasis on the Renaissance period. The students engaged in a range of practical work, sketching outdoors and in galleries and photographing areas of interest.

The Italian tour included gallery and museum visits to see works by Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Giotto and Donatello, along with other medieval and renaissance works. Students and staff climbed several tall towers and explored cathedrals, monasteries and churches.
