Monday morning meant it was time for our students to get back to their usual schedule of lessons at St Peter’s. This didn’t necessarily mean a return to the classroom for all our students though.
Our Photography and Sketching class ventured out into Oxford to put their artistic eyes to the test with some drawing on location at the Covered Market. As a city bursting with classical architecture and multicultural people, Oxford is undoubtedly an ideal place for artists and our students were overjoyed by the chance to sketch some scenes from its market. It was a very concentrated afternoon with everyone eager to put the skills they’ve been cultivating over the session to good use, and by the time the students packed up their equipment some really amazing drawing had been created.
The evening was a chance to chill out (literally!) after a busy day back at lessons with a trip to G&D’s in Oxford. The popular cafe serves up delicious ice cream that unsurprisingly proved to be a big hit amongst our students!
Once everyone was feeling suitably relaxed, the students headed back to St Peter’s or off to the university parks for the rest of their evening. Those back at the college settled down for an educational film night watching Blue Planet or indulged their creative sides making some unique tie-dye shirts.
For the students with too much energy after their sugary visit, football was the answer. A high skill and high intensity game took place with both sides eager for victory. There were even a few spectators cheering the players on from the sidelines!
No matter which side won, the students returned to St Peter’s slightly tired out but with plenty of smiles.
