NEARLY 50 Weston College art students swapped the tidal waters of Weston-super-Mare for the wild Atlantic surf of the Cornish coast.

The UAL (University of the Arts London) Foundation Course students spent a week finding creative inspiration around Penzance, the Penwith Peninsula and St Ives.

UAL Fine Art Tutor Steve White, said: "We spent time looking at the ropes and creels of fishing quays in Newlyn Harbour, galleries and amazing beaches.

"The Tate Gallery in St.Ives had an amazing wide-ranging exhibition and we also visited the wonderful Minack Theatre on the cliffs of Porthcurno.

"Everybody focused on bringing their creative project ideas and material experiments toward some practical conclusion. It was the perfect setting for creativity in a unique environment."

More than 80 per cent of UAL students go on to study higher education Degrees, many at Weston College's University Campus.

Twenty per cent of Weston College students achieved a First Class Honours Degree in 2012 – well above the national average of 14 per cent.
