Yesterday was the first of many days out and visits to see art in situ in the south west.
Second year students got the chance to visit the Penlee Gallery and the Exchange, both in Penzance. They got to explore the galleries and made drawings of the artwork they saw.
The Penlee Gallery is showing an exhibition on portrait painter Leonard Fuller, a key figure of the St. Ives school of art. Whilst the Exchange has artwork on display from Sandra Blow, a pioneer of the British post-war abstract movement, also with links to St. Ives.
The students had a great time viewing the exhibitions and will use ideas from their studies as starting points for their next project.
