In Pictures: Students recreate famous works of art at Looe Beach

Students took Looe Beach by storm on Tuesday 26 August to create relief sculptures in the sand.

Over 90 students from Plymouth College of Art's Foundation Art Degree programme recreated famous works by artists including Henry Moore, Mark Quinn, and Sarah Lucas – who will represent Britain in the 2015 Venice Biennale.

A strong wind made sculpting difficult – but the results had townspeople and visitors applauding.

Among the impressed onlookers were members of East Looe Town Trust, who awarded a £50 prize to the best sculpture.

The beach outing is an annual event for new students studying for a foundation diploma in Art and Design at the college. The one-year intensive course prepares post A-Level students for university through discovery, experimentation and exploration.

Course leader Helen Markes said: "It's a great opportunity for our new students to discover ways of scaling work and it also encourages them to work collaboratively and discover the creative interests of their fellow students.
