First year Isles of Scilly study visit

13.11.19 TrescoIn October, 25 first year BA Drawing students and staff spent a week on Tresco, The Isles of Scilly, as guests of Lucy and Robert Dorrien Smith.

Students made many drawings, including a 360 degree panorama, made as a collective.  Students really benefited from being immersed in the special landscape of the Scillies, and gained much from recording this experience through drawing:

“I loved doing the wide-angle drawing.  We sat up on the hill in bright sunshine on the north side of the island and looked down towards Gimble Porth.  It’s a little bubble of paradise with its own variations.  I am amazed at the diversity” (Minna Gawler-Wright, student, BA(Hons) Drawing Year 1)
