First Wave Artventures
Why not combine an experience of the atlantic ocean with the expression of art?
The week can range from day visits to ;
The Eden Project, Tate St. Ives, The Kurt Jackson Foundation, St Michael's Mount, University College Falmouth, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Great Western Beach.
An introduction to the Cornish Art scene on arrival is combined with the opportunity to take part in a surfing lesson. Or perhaps you are working on a particular module and you want to make studio links? Annie-May will be happy to suggest and design a trip for your group.

Let us bespoke an Art trip for your group
Here is a sample of our favourite quotes from the students:
What were the best bits:
Painting on the beach because it was quite chilled and a lovely end to the week
Waking up to the sound of the sea every morning is pretty special
Falmouth University Challenged what I wanted to do with my life
Creating art work in response to a surfing lesson
The amout of trips we packed into one week
St Ives because it was quaint and I loved the art and sculpture gardens
Panting on the beach and the lost gardens of Heligan
St Michaels because it was peaceful being able to draw and paint freely
Knowing that I was standing in the same spot as Barbra Hepworth
Why do you think an art trip is important?
Because it allows more experiences of different environments and exposes you to more art
The cornish art scene is so famous its was great to feel apart of its history and experience its uniqueness
To draw things first hand and do extensive research
It gives you a chance to get first hand research and drawings from environments you wouldn’t normally come into contact with
Research and group bonding
