Lower Sixth students are inspired by art trip

The Lower Sixth Art students spent a morning at John Howard’s Print Studios in Penryn.

They learnt about the process of aluminium plate etching where an image is etched into a metal plate with acid, leaving hollows to hold ink.

The students then had the chance to create their own printing plates with some fantastic results.

John Howard is an award-winning printmaker and painter with extensive experience and Truro School’s budding artists enjoyed asking for any hints and tips. The morning provided valuable experience that they will be able to use for their A Level course.
