Verbal Art Show

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.

The Show is Go – Bakers Dozen

The show is now OPEN. A few words of introduction by our team leader, Mark Dunford –

“Welcome to our exhibition.
This is the thirteenth year we have used this space to showcase the creativity of our Art & Design students at Truro College. Our exhibition presents a diverse range of ideas, materials, techniques and approaches. Creativity is part of our daily lives; it enriches and stimulates us.
Whether we are makers or consumers, we value and consider the innovative decisions made and shared by designers, artists and craftspeople.
Creativity is inherent but it requires courage to pursue and strength to recognise that imagination is everything.
The UK creative industries includes all arts, crafts, galleries and museums, advertising and marketing, film, TV and radio. Annually they contribute £92bn. to the UK economy.*
Baker’s Dozen is a testament to the ingenuity of the students and staff at Truro College, so please enjoy the work of the next generation of artists and designers as they provide air and dimension to their ideas, shaping our future with their creativity.
Mark Dunford”
