In Pictures: Foundation Art and Design Show 2015

By Jake May

From a packed Private View to an energetic visit from Plymouth School of Creative Arts’ pupils and five days of open exhibition, this year’s Foundation Art and Design Show once again showed off the incredible talent of some of our up-and-coming artists, designer and makers.

The annual show, which this year ran from 14 to 19 April, is an opportunity for our Foundation Diploma in Art and Design students to unveil their excellent work to an audience of press, industry, and friends and family.

With work ranging from Fine Art sculpture, Illustrated comic book, experimental Photography, Film, Fashion, and lots, lots more, the exhibition is experimental, diverse and inspiring.

"Once again, we've had a fantastic year of students finding their feet as artists, designers and makers – and this year's show has been another brilliant success," said Foundation Diploma in Art and Design leader Helen Markes.

"Not only has the show been fantastically well attended – over the past week we've had hundreds of people exploring our students' work – but we again received excellent feedback and comments from those who did visit."

Our Foundation Diploma in Art and Design is a one-year, intensive course of discovery, experimentation and exploration. 

Students work across a range of processes and materials through three pathways – Fine Art, Visual Communication, and Fashion and Textiles.

Year 7s from Plymouth School of Creative Arts, our creative Milbay-based free school, visited the show to take in inspiration.

The show draws in industry and press, students, staff, members of the public, as well as family and friends.
