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?

AROUND THE DEPARTMENT 20/11


Interesting artwork from around the department this week –
Clay models made by Second Year Extended Diploma Design students from their Visual Studies lecture with a life model.
Extended Diploma Design students working on function/non function in ceramics.
Examples of collograph plates and prints made by the Extended Diploma graphics and illustration students. The brief is to design a cover for the movie magazine Little White Lies based on a selected movie. These are examples for the films Ex Machina, Heather’s, Psycho and The Darjeeling Limited.
Level 2 Art and Design students with their work from the brief ‘containers’.
After an inspirational visit to the Tate Gallery in St Ives, first year Extended Diploma students created experimental surfaces using waste plastic packaging exploring shape and colour.

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.

Verb Project


The final show and project of 2019 summer term is done, thats all folks.
The remaining 1st year Extended Diploma students had one last artwork to show this week, their Verb project.
The all picked a verb (to hang, to twist etc) and made an outcome of their choice to represent this.
No marks, no scores, just for fun, and with great results.
Now time to sign off on another fab year, see you in September.

Student Art Showcase


Some stunning work from the Level 1 and 2 art students, taken from their first two projects based on ‘everyday objects’ shown through 2D & 3D images. The students have learnt about a variety of skills for 2D; painting, mixed media, mark-making… and 3D; relief work, sculpture using cardboard and wire.
The learners have then used artists research to develop the projects using their own choice of media and techniques. They have worked hard and I am very proud of their outcomes.

geometric forms

Second Year Design students on the UAL L3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design recently visited Royal Cornwall Museum on a research trip.
Responding to the incredible mineral collections there, they developed a series of geometric forms which suggest the crystalline structures to which they refer. Developing skills with brazing, casting, construction and reductive techniques, the students created their own collections of forms.
