Post 16 students visit the Cornwall Contemporary Gallery in Penzance

Just before half term, our Post 16 BTEC Art & Design students visitied the Cornwall Contemporary Gallery in Penzance and met a local artist, David Mankin. He took the students through a really inspiring view of his creative process and the reality of being a working fine artist. He talked about process, technique and influences and the importance of pushing forward outside of your comfort zone to find the "magic". It was a brilliant day and an experience that enthused all the students who talked openly and with ease with David throughout. We would like to thank both David and Sarah at Cornwall Contemporary for a fabulous and valuable experience.
