This week in art

Final round up of the year from the art & design department here at Truro College.

We have work from fashion, feminism in print, fine art and life drawing as everyone gears up for the major project starting in the new year.

Wishing all our followers a merry Christmas and all the best for 2020!

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?

One Day Design Challenge

Results of a one day project. Second Year Extended Diploma Art Students were asked to design packaging for Dynamite Valley Brewery or Who Gives a Crap toilet paper. The class was divided into groups of 3 and given a theme as a starting point. After 6 hours this is the result. Welcome back second years, and well done! #artanddesign #design #graphics

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.
