Students see artists at work

A group of students from Pool Academy were invited to Krowji to visit artists working in their studios during the recent Open Studios Cornwall event.

On their visit the group of eight students could ask the artists and makers questions as well as learn about what it was like to work as a creative practitioner.

Natalie Ellis, Head of Art at Pool Academy, said: “Students asked where the artists got their inspiration from, how they got into pottery, printing or jewellery making and what it was like to run their own business.”

“Students learnt that running their own business, like those at Krowji, meant they also needed a good basic understanding of maths to do their own budgets, profit margins and tax returns plus English to show they can promote themselves via press releases.”
