Truro Schools Combined Art Exhibition – Grand Opening
It’s full steam ahead for our artists as they put the finishing touches to scrap metal robots, cyanotypes, darkroom photography and pieces based on anatomy in preparation for the Grand Opening of the Combined Truro Schools Art Exhibition next week.
The exhibition will, for the first time, be taking pride of place amongst the collections at the Royal Cornwall Museum so do join us on Monday 26 March at 6pm for what is set to be a fabulous showcase of work from the county’s brightest and best creative minds.
The exhibition follows a series of workshops in which Truro High artists joined pupils from five other schools from the Truro area to work with professional artists exploring their creative flair and creating stunning pieces of artwork.
These have ranged from photography masterclasses at Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station to a screen printing workshop with local artist Tony Minnion. This jam-packed programme will culminate with an intensive one-day dance workshop at Truro High.
In collaboration with the Royal Cornwall Museum, this year the project has chosen to explore the ‘STEM into STEAM’ movement which aims to bring together Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics in order to inspire inquiring minds and spark creative critical thinking. The Grand Opening will commence with a piece of interpretative dance created in this final workshop.
The Combined Truro Schools Art exhibition at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro, will run from Tuesday 27 March – Sunday 1 April from 10 – 4pm.
