A group of A Level creative arts students recently travelled to Barcelona to visit the city's museums and the famous unfinished cathedral by architect Antoni Gaudi.

The group of 20 students, including representatives from Textiles, Art and Design and Photography A level courses, toured the Catalonia National Museum of Art and admired the stunning views of the city from its balconies. Following this, the group toured the Olympic Stadium, built for the 1992 Games.

The following day the group went to see Gaudi's spectacular and unfinished cathedral. A lift took the group to the top of the structure to get a much closer view of its unique design and architecture.

After a walking tour of the city centre the group visited an exhibition of modern art followed by lunch, some free time and another modern art museum visit.

William Richardson, one of the students on the visit, said: "Overall the trip was a big success and a unique experience. The group as a whole enjoyed the experience together and managed to gather lots of information and influences for the upcoming exam; which was what the trip was all about."

College lecturer Ilona Denton, who accompanied the students, added: "They enjoyed the free time after the day trips, showed maturity, helped each other out and never failed to show up on time when we set meeting points. They were enthusiastic about the striking architecture and gained much inspiration from the museums and galleries."
