Fourteen students at Cromwell Community College visited Fitzwilliam Museum to discover more about the arts and artists of the Victorian era.

The Year 8 students, working alongside Sarah-Cate and Lucy from the museum, looked at art and objects including paintings, ceramics, jewellery, furniture and wallpapers.

They then made their own art works as part of the Arts Award scheme which has three levels: bronze, silver and gold.
