Students invited to explore art in St Ives

Students at Pool Academy are being invited to take part in art sessions at a studio in St Ives.

St Ives School of Painting is running its Young Artists programme again this year and the next workshop is due to take place on January 20th.

The sessions are for people aged between 13 years and 18 years old and run from 1pm until 4pm.

Cat lee, Young Artists Coordinator, said: “This term we are paying a life model so the young people can do some figure drawing.

“The sessions will be tutored by a range of professional artists.

“The students will learn how to draw a clothed model and represent the figure using a variety of art materials and techniques.

“Each artist brings their own style and unique way of working, from environmental, to textiles and fashion.

“We are excited about this offer as the teens don’t get a chance to do this in school or even at art college anymore”

People living in Cornwall will pay a membership price of £10

Cat said there are a few scholarship places available for the workshops.
