Roll up, roll up for seaside art trip

Published on 04/03/19

It was all the fun of the fair for The Hewett Academy’s art and photography students as they found inspiration for their GCSE projects at Great Yarmouth’s famous seaside.

At the Tide & Tide Museum students explored the Circus! exhibition, which celebrated 250 years of the circus with a focus on Great Yarmouth’s historic and modern links to the much-loved entertainment.

The students created drawings and poster designs inspired by the displays of vintage costumes, props, posters, and photos.

The vintage seaside vibe continued with a photoshoot on Yarmouth's golden sands and the arcades of its Edwardian and Victorian promenade.

Teacher Francesca Cant said: “The behaviour of all pupils was exceptional and I can’t wait to see how their projects progress.”
