Visit to Plymouth College of Art

“On Thursday 14th June The Art, Design and Technology Faculty took 49 Year 10 Art, Textiles and Product Design GCSE students  to Plymouth College of Art to have a tour of the Degree Shows. We were shown around by three of the Degree Graduates from a variety of the courses on offer – thanks to Sally, Ed and Charlotte for their informative and enthusiastic tours!

The students saw a wide diversity of work across the many Campus’ studio spaces and got a great ‘feel’ for the kind of work that the College produces at this level. They saw the work of Fashion students, Costume Design right through to Illustration and Gaming Design, via Photography and 3D Crafts! There were some highlights and some gasps of surprise at some of the more visually challenging work! But all the students agreed that it was a great experience and that it had inspired them, made them think and made them question their own creative ideas.

The Year 10 students were a credit to the College and their impeccable behaviour and clear enthusiasm for the work was commented on by PCA staff – they were one of the best school groups that they have shown around!”
