Art and Design Students 'Collect & Create'

On Wednesday 20 December 2017, Art and Design students at Richmond upon Thames College studying the UAL Level 3 (Pre BA) Foundation Diploma hosted an exhibition titled ‘COLLECT & CREATE'.

RuTC Collect and Create Student Talks To Robin

Students identified an issue or agenda they were interested in and collated research in sketchbooks. This research was a starting point for experimental art and design work in a wide range of specialist areas such as fashion and painting. As an integral part of the project, students had to display their work in an exhibition. One student stated, “Throughout the project I had to think about the audience and what they would think of my work, and I found that really useful when it came to developing my work”.

The exhibition was a huge success and was attended by staff at the college and visitors from the local community. Students now plan to use their work and photography as part of their university interview portfolios.

Art and Design Students Paint Mural Within College

Wednesday 28 March 2018

After a really positive response from the Principal, the UAL Level 2 Art and Design group was given the go-ahead to paint a mural on the walls of the link corridor from the Art department towards the refectory.

The students went on a research trip to London to visit the White Cube and Victoria Miro galleries as well as Tate Modern. We looked at the London skyline and used drawing to distort it into abstract and colourful patterns. The live mural brief fitted perfectly into Unit 5 in which students have to solve a creative problem. The circular theme echoed the work of one the artists we looked at in London (Minjung Kim) and gave each student a unique section to work on.

The mural has brightened up the corridor massively. When these buildings are knocked down to make way for the new college, sections of the mural will be kept as a record of the old building; just like the Berlin wall!
