NEWBALD School pupils have enriched their studies of local artist David Hockney with a ‘once in a lifetime’ trip to his exhibition in London.

The youngsters have been studying Hockney’s work - which over the last few years has concentrated on the Yorkshire Wolds landscape - and were given the chance to see the original paintings for themselves in a visit to the Royal Academy of Arts.

Headteacher Kath Carlisle said that the pupils were excited about trip.

She said: “We felt that he is an East Yorkshire artist exhibiting at the Royal Academy, that is probably going to be a once in a lifetime event for the children to have a local artist exhibit there.

“They were very excited.”

The trip, which took place yesterday, was supported by Hull Trains who offered discounted fares for the children to travel down to London.
