Art and English students visit the Lizard

Truro School’s A Level artists have kick-started their course alongside the English department with their joint annual residential trip. This year the departments visited the Lizard.

The group started their trip with a visit to the beautiful Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens near Penzance where they observed internationally renowned artists such as James Turrell RA and David Nash RA. In the evening the students enjoyed a night walk and created work based on their experience. The following day they visited a local beach and the Trelowarren Estate. The English group departed and the Art group enjoyed a coffee, swim and group bonding at Coverack.

On the Sunday the students visited the harbour at Coverack and Kynance Cove where they were given observational tasks that helped them start to understand their topic of the year focusing on ‘Sense of Place’.

Head of Art, Mr Meads, said:

“The group were amazing and focused throughout. A real pleasure to take on the trip.”
