University College Falmouth students shine at Foundation Studies in Art and Design End of Year Show

A celebratory exhibition of work from students who are close to completing University College Falmouth's Foundation Studies in Art & Design diploma is due to open at Falmouth Arts Centre and the College's Wellington Terrace Annexe next week.

"This exhibition is a celebration of the most formative period for these students," says Foundation Studies in Art & Design course leader, Phil Naylor. "It is when their transformation into artists and designers really begins, when eyes are opened, attitudes are changed and ideas are formed."

The End of Year Show showcases a diverse selection of work produced by the students during this intensive year of study, which encompasses fine art, 3D design, photography, fashion, graphic design and textiles, and prepares them for their next steps.

Falmouth's Foundation course, available both full and part-time, offers students an ideal gateway into higher education in art and design through a series of compelling lectures, seminars and practical projects. There are also opportunities to visit and research some of London's top galleries and museums, as well as receive talks from professionals in the world of contemporary art and design.

"We are very proud of the success of University College Falmouth's Foundation course in placing students on higher level courses," adds Phil Naylor. "For many years, over 90% of our students have gained entry to degree courses in the full range of art and design disciplines, from graphics to jewellery, footwear design to illustration, textiles to printmaking and 3D design to theatre design, either at Falmouth or throughout the United Kingdom," he continues. "The Foundation End of Year Show is a testament to our students' remarkable achievements and we wish them every success in their future careers."

University College Falmouth's Foundation Studies in Art & Design End of Year Show runs from Friday 26 May to Thursday 1 June and is open to the public from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday and admission is free.
