As part of the CORE program, Year 7 students took part in a field trip to Wolverhampton Art Gallery to develop an appreciation for different types of art. Students were really engaged with the artwork on display and were asked to draw a picture of themselves with their favorite piece of art. Students feedback was that they enjoyed seeing the different variety of art, especially the sculptures and the pop art.
