Art Trip to Florence

A group of SMC students travelled to Florence, home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture.

Throughout this exciting programme, organised by the Art teachers at St Martin’s College, students had the opportunity to see some important art works that form part of their syllabus.

The Art trip included guided visits to the Uffizi, the Palatine Gallery at the Pitti Palace and the Palazzo Vecchio. Students also visited the Galleria dell’ Accademia, the Museo dell’ Opera dell’ Duomo and a temporary exhibition dedicated to Verrochio, Leonardo da Vinci’s Master at Palazzo Strozzi.

The group also attended a number of bottega workshops at the Leonardo da Vinci Academy in Florence where they were taught how to make a tempera painting, a fresco and engraving.

A trip to Pisa and Siena also formed part of this trip.

Definitely a unique educational experience for all to treasure! A big thank you to all involved!
