AROUND THE DEPARTMENT 28/11

Another week, another round up of fab artwork from our students.
Life Drawing Art Academy were working on their wire sculptures, Extended Diploma second year Art has animation in progress, year 1 A level graphics students are experimenting with relief prints and Second year Extended Diploma students on the Graphics Pathway created these images by constructing dioramas in response to the theme ‘House of Sin’. Each student created a room for one of the Seven Deadly Sins, working inventively on a small scale to create maximum impact!
Finally the art department helped to create another lantern this year for the Truro City of Light parade, can you spot him?

Saturday Art Club – Plymouth Masterclass

Last month Truro College SAC along with the clubs from Cornwall College and Plymouth College of Art attended a sculpture masterclass.
Making large inflated sculptures this masterclass was taught by Thomas Randell-Page who teaches architecture in a London college.
After a talk the members worked/drew ideas on long piece of paper for their creation. Members from each college were mixed up into several groups. Working with people from different colleges they designed and made a large sculpture out of thick polythene sheet, these were then joined together and inflated with fans to create their finished sculptures. I think the kids enjoyed getting inside the inflated sculptures.
The group was then given a demonstration of glass blowing.
Everyone had a great day, and their fabulous work is shown below.

Shed Shed Shed lovely Sheds


What do you do with a load of scrap wood ? Make a shed !

Inspired by George Clarke’s T.V programme (Shed of the Year, Channel 4) the Saturday Art club designed and made for wooden buildings.
It was quite a challenge to produce something in 2 hours from scratch but the students rose to the challenge. There was a frenzy of sawing and gluing, and the production of some imaginative constructions.

Making Ocarinas


This week the Saturday Art Club were working with clay to produce Ocarinas ( little clay Flutes )
Inspired by the film `The Silence of Ani` by Francis Alys . He filmed a group of young people in the ancient and ruined city of Ani, on the border between Armenia and Turkey. They were given different bird whistles and with their calls brought life back to the ruins.
