Berlin Trip March 2016 On the 10th March, 42 students from Paston Sixth Form College set off on a trip to Berlin. The Arts and Technology Faculty organise trips to Berlin and Amsterdam on alternate years. The students visited a number of galleries including The Hamburger Bahnhof where they saw works by Andy Warhol and Anselm Kiefer. They also visited the Sammlung Boros collection of contemporary art which is housed in a World War Two bunker. Photography students visited the Tempelhof Airport and took some impressive images of a huge, abandoned complex of buildings. The students gained much from the trip and have sketchbooks full of drawings, photographs and research into artists which is being used to support their studies back at College.

Beth Adams studies Fine Art and is heading off to Lincoln University to study Illustration said “Berlin was a great experience. You can immerse yourself in the galleries and culture. It has helped me to identify my place within contemporary art”.

Matt Phelps Faculty Leader for Art and Technology at Paston said “The students were a real credit to the college. Taking students to galleries and providing them with opportunities to photograph and experience a culture different to their own is a big part of what we do. What I find encouraging is that a number of students re-visit the places we take them to independently. Some have taken up university exchanges with Berlin as part of their degree courses.”
