A couple of weeks ago, on the 23rd of August to be precise, a group of students of the International English Centre Summer School visited the School of Art after hours. The plan was to produce a memento of their time here in Aber; the topic was to be ‘Life at the Sea’. At first, however, they were invited to listen to a short talk about a work by Victorian illustrator Richard Doyle, fittingly named At the Sea-side, and then to have a look around the current exhibition Sea Change for some inspiration. Afterwards, it was time to go to the life-drawing studio upstairs and get their creativity going and their hands dirty. With the help of paints, brushes, photos, scissors and glue, they created a lovely picture of a typical Aber sunset surrounded by photos of themselves on various adventures around the area. As you can see from the photos, they certainly had a good time.
Thanks for a great visit and have a safe journey home!

PS: The collage now has a place of honour on the walls of the IEC – well deserved, don’t you think?
