Year 10 Art Trip to Penlee House

On Thursday 20th September our Y10 Art students….

visited the Galleries, Museum and Gardens at Penlee House in Penzance. They were divided in to three groups, which rotated around to spend time in three areas, during the course of the day. They spent their time gathering visual and verbal information; taking photos (where allowed) sketching, drawing and making notes. At lunch time we were given the use of the Old Coach House.

The grounds were beautiful, including the particularly atmospheric walled Memorial Garden, where students found many interesting shapes and textures to draw and photograph.

Indoors, the main exhibition was ‘Out of the Shadows’, which is the first major retrospective of the work of Sven Berlin to be held in Cornwall since he left St. Ives in 1953. The diversity of his work, with its flamboyance and sensitivity, is presented as a journey through his life, which the students found fascinating and accessible.

Upstairs was a small, representative exhibition of works from the Newlyn School collection, including the popular ‘School is Out’ by Elizabeth Adela Forbes, as well as a small but diverse Museum, housing archaeological artefacts and local treasures such as Newlyn Copper and Alec Walker’s Crysede fabrics ….something for everyone!

Our students were excellent company, and all behaved sensibly and responsibly, a good time being had by all.
