Young Arts Launch Party

04On a gorgeously sunny but brisk September evening, we met on Porthmeor Beach in St Ives to admire the results of our first ever Young Arts Project.

Under the guidance of Young Arts leader Samme Charlesworth and her team, a group of St Ives Secondary School students designed magnificent deck chairs, using inspiration taken from Ben Nicholson. Artist and West Cornwall DFAS member Alice Mumford worked with the students to help them develop their visions and create their final projects.

02The deck chairs, which were much admired, looked stunning lined up on the beach against a dramatic backdrop of crashing waves. All the chairs were purchased, either by the students and their families, or by members of the public. The festive atmosphere was added to by a lovely spread of drinks and nibbles put on by the Young Arts team.

St Ives Mayor Colin Nicholls was on hand, along with the students, their families, members of the school’s faculty, representatives from the local press and West Cornwall DFAS members.
