Today 15 boys, Michele and others were buzzing to get on the train to London. We arrived at Piccadilly racing to get on the tube to Trafalgar square, where we were privileged to a sunny day and a great drawing opportunity. Before lunch we headed to the Royal Academy to attend the Manet exhibition which was the first ever in the UK, with obviously a great attendance. We all learned about the fascinating life of Manet. It is argued that he was the father of the impressionist artists, and did things differently to other artists. This caused much uproar throughout the art community at the time. This was a great time to widen our art knowledge, helping us with our exams. We then went for pizza after which we were straight back on the train following our long day. Every boy enjoyed the day and we are all grateful to Michele who organised the trip.
