Impressions of Place is inspired by the Monet in Mind exhibition at Ferens Art Gallery, Hull (May-July 2021). Taking the exhibition’s theme of mindfulness as a starting point, inspired by Monet’s Antibes (1888), the activities included in the project encourage students to respond to their surroundings using mapping, drawing and collage.
