After a long (wet) summer break, here we are at the start of a new academic year waiting to welcome a new intake of 1st year BA students and also MA students to start their Illustration studies at FAlmouth University. This comes a week after celebrating with the class of 2015 at their fantastic graduation ceremony, overseen by our new Chancellor, Dawn French. I hope to get more photographs of this event soon.
Staff are looking forward to welcoming the new intake during freshers (induction) week and 2nd and 3rd year students a week later.
This year importantly sees The Illustration Subject area at Falmouth University taking up residence throughout all three floors of the Fox 2 building at the Woodlane Campus. This is important as it not only brings the MA and BA courses together geographically for the first time but also creates more space and light within the studios. The studios are already looking good and are ready to go. Work, including the installation of new windows hopefully will be totally complete by the end of October 2015.
Some great news came in from one of our alumni, Charlotte Orr, who is confirmed as having won the ‘Public Realm’ category under New Talent in the AOI World Illustration Awards. Well done Charlotte!
