Students invited to meet artist Kurt Jackson

A group of students from Pool Academy have been invited to Truro to meet artist Kurt Jackson.

They will be travelling to the Royal Cornwall Museum next Wednesday (SEPT26) to take part in ARTiculation Discovery day from 10.30am until 3pm.

During the day they will be given a tour of the gallery and shown three pieces of work by Kurt Jackson, an artist who lives in Cornwall. They will also be able to meet him and ask questions about his work.

Students will learn about the ARTiculation prize and be asked to research a piece of work before conducting a short presentation on their findings.

Natalie Ellis, Art teacher at Pool Academy, said: “The event is a wonderful opportunity for any GCSE Art student to gain valuable experience in talking and writing about art and learning about how to become an effective communicator.”

The ARTiculation Prize has been created to encourage young people to look, think and speak about art for people aged between 14 and 23 years old.
