Boggle Hole Arty Adventures...

A couple of weeks ago, the Art Foundation students ventured out to their residential trip to Boggle Hole, North Yorkshire.
We stayed at the amazing YHA Boggle Hole.
Boggle Hole was the best class room ever...
and I had the best desk!
Landscape painting...
...with a sea weed brush!
Inside, the hostel was so cosy and decorated with such care.
There were even resident Boggles!
Free donkey rides!
The best hot chocolates!
( Thank you Alice for organising such an amazing trip.)
The students even printed special 'Boggle My Hole' t- shirts.
Marshmallows and a camp fire!
The next day we went fossil hunting with Hidden Horizons, it was absolutely brilliant!
I felt so proud of the students, they worked so hard and we had such a great time.
After spending the morning on the beach, we walked to Robin Hood's Bay.
My heart burst with pride to see the students papping a rusty door!
I did a spot of gnome papping!
We all wanted this little house for an art studio!
In the evening there was lots of arty goings on.
On my last day I went down to the beach to see the sun rise,and I can't describe how beautiful it was.
(I might have even shed a little tear or two!)

I hope you enjoyed our Art Foundation trip, time for another hot chocolate methinks!
And I'd just like to say a huge thank you to everyone at the YHA Boggle Hole, the whole stay was truly amazing and you made us all feel so welcome.


  1. Oh I felt like a young student again after looking at your trip, you're so lucky to experience this every year... x

  2. Thank you for this. I have never been to Boggle Hole and its so close, so now I feel truly ashamed. Lovely to see your students working hard and having a great time. You should be proud.

    1. Thank you, Im very proud of them indeed!
      If you get the chance to visit its so lovely, and the YHA cafe is amazing! x

  3. Thank you for sharing such a lovely inspiring post. I was never an Art Student but I'd like to think that if there's a 'second chance' I would be.....sometime in the future your students will look back at trips like these and inspire another set of wonderful young artists..

    1. That is such a lovely, lovely thing to say Adrienne.
      Thank you xxx


Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
