Members of Truro College Saturday Art Club (NADSC) recently went to London for their annual trip.
They all visited Central St Martins where their self portrait work, and work from other clubs from around the country was on show. They also all took part in a joint art activity.
The rest of the day was taken up with a visit to the V & A to view a special exhibition about the future, and some of the permanent collection.
Next week they we`re back at college, printing tote bags.
We looked at the way textiles are printed by hand in India. Students then made lino blocks of houses or shops to create a repeat pattern, as our theme this year is the urban environment. Then we printed printing the canvas tote bags by various methods with cracking results, as shown below.
Penlee House, Gallery and museum invite you along to view – Penlee Inspired. An exhibition of art inspired in response to the collections and exhibitions at Penlee House. Featuring work from Truro College Art & Design students and further afield.

As we head into the final few days of term and the academic year our 1st year Extended Diploma students have `wowed` us one last time.
Each year they are set a finally transition project to link them into year two of the course, and it takes the form of the students `illustrating` a verb with their own artwork.
This year they have smashed it, with the best collection of thoughtful and inspiring pieces we`ve yet seen.
Their second year looks set to be a good one.
