Here Comes Summer

Uneeka Visual Merchandising Project.

Minnie Bunce is an A2 Illustration and Fine Art student. Working in collaboration with Uneeka on this project allowed Minnie to incorporate her illustrative style on a much larger scale.

HERE COMES SUMMER is a design taken from Minnie’s A2 Fine Art project. The window designs were originally inspired by the lively, colourful, beautiful mess that comes about in a big family house when the season changes and summer is on the HORIZON.

Horizons – the countdown begins.

This time next week the department will be busy on Truro Plaza setting up the show.
Preperation continues apace here at college with piles of plinths ready to go and artwork being readied for exhibition.

This year’s show will focus on journeys and the varied horizons open to creative individuals. The public will have the chance to change their outlook and to see what might be on the horizon and who is striving to reach their goals now and in the future! It will prove that the creative experience broadens horizons!

“The aim of HORIZONS is to celebrate the outstanding art and design work produced by Truro College art and design students” comments Mark Dunford, Deputy Team Leader for Art & Design. “By taking our work out of the White Building into a temporary highly visible exhibition space, right in the heart of the community, this will provide everyone with a unique insight into this year’s highly individual work. An exhibition of this kind can have a dramatic impact upon the students’ future and career within the creative industries”.
