Students at the Cronton School of Art have returned from an inspirational trip to Paris which gave them the opportunity to visit some of the most historic and influential galleries in the world.
The students managed to see the classical artworks of the Musée du Louvre and Musée de l’Orangerie, and the Centre Pompidou for modern and contemporary artworks. As well as the trips to the galleries, the students were able to gain inspiration from a quick stop tour of Père Lachaise Cemetery, Moulin Rouge, Notre-Dame cathedral and a walk up the Champs Elysees, whilst in the evening students took in the sights of the Sacre Coeur and the Eiffel Tower.
Maxine Mealey, Head of the Cronton School of Art at Cronton Sixth Form College said, “The students really enjoyed the trip. It is so important for them to experience the fantastic galleries and sites in a city such as Paris. We managed to squeeze so much into four days including a fabulous Parisian meal at the famous Chartier restaurant and time in the artist’s square of Montmartre. They will now be able to use this experience to develop work of their own.”
