The group were able to view a collection of contemporary pieces inspired by the Margaret Whitford Bequest. Some of the pieces were also created by the students.

After seeing their work on display they then went to Falmouth University for a tour around the campus before having a picnic lunch.

Mr Lees, on Pool School Art Gallery Instagram account @poolschoolgallery, wrote: “Wonderful trip to Falmouth Art Gallery. Work by Pool Academy students is framed and on display.

“Thank you Falmouth Art Gallery and the Citizen Curators.

“We then ran up Jacobs ladder, ate a picnic at Falmouth University, looked around the excellent 1st year Fine Art exhibitions and studied the Woodlane Windows display.”

A spokesperson for Falmouth Gut Reaction, on their Instagram account @falmouthgutreaction, wrote: “It was so nice to see @poolacademy yesterday morning on their trip to @falmouthartgallery to see their brilliant works framed in the gallery. We enjoyed a workshop together and even celebrated with cake.”
