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?

Stop Motion Set Design

Our design students on the UAL L3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design have been working together to create sets for stop motion animation.

Given a basic setting, scenario and era, they have worked in pairs and threes to build these miniature sets using readily available materials. The sets are no larger than 50cm in any direction and some employ forced perspective techniques to create the illusion of larger spaces.

See photos below of the finish, and stunning, work.
