At the end of last school year, the 5th VWO class provided sketches and ideas for the design. It was immediately clear that they wanted to create the city of Leiden, where they live, where their school is located and what they are proud of. Yannick Wilthof, Mats Schutz, Madelief Gérard and Nick Schouten, students from 6 VWO of the Da Vinci College (location: Kagerstraat), made a choice from all the designs provided and painted the Giant Tulip Bulb. With enthusiasm and a lot of personal input, they determined which sketches they wanted to use for the bulb and they got to work with enthusiasm. It was immediately clear that perspective would play a major role. These students will take their final exams in drawing in 2024 and are also active in making art outside of school.
