AROUND THE DEPARTMENT 8/11


This week second year Design Pathway students on the Extended Diploma did a workshop with set designer @scenographer_fiona_chivers following a visit to @breezeartmakersfair. The students worked with Fiona to develop their initial ideas for a live brief they are doing, to create a set design for La Bohēme, as part of the Design Challenge run by @royaloperahouse. Thank you to all involved.
Second Year FdA Silversmithing and Jewellery students were practicing their engraving.
Foundation Art & Design students @truro_penwith learnt about creative use of destructive techniques by manipulating negatives in the dark room as part of their Serendipity brief.
Foundation Art and Design Ideas and Concepts students @truro_penwith were taken out of their comfort zone during an experimental drawing task using their bodies… the results were great!
And some amazing drawings produced in the Life Drawing Art Academy this week also.

New students – new term


Our new term kicked of in fine style today with all our new, excited and creative students.
The White building was a hive of activity with the new term buzz in the air.
After tutor session the students faced their first challenge, the annual paper tower build.
In groups they constructed two towers from newspaper, linked by a bridge.
The `twist` – roll a raw egg from one side to the other!
Did the eggs survive? Of course!
Success, and they`re are off to a flying start.

Verb Project


The final show and project of 2019 summer term is done, thats all folks.
The remaining 1st year Extended Diploma students had one last artwork to show this week, their Verb project.
The all picked a verb (to hang, to twist etc) and made an outcome of their choice to represent this.
No marks, no scores, just for fun, and with great results.
