Museum Takeover

On Wednesday 24th May, Penlee Museum was taken over for a day of workshops followed by an evening of music, dance and exhibitions in art and photography by a team of MBA Silver Arts Awards students.

During the day, a group of keen, talented Year 7 artists, photographers and dancers were taken down to the museum where they were able to use the inspirational artwork of Newlyn and Mousehole artists to create their own work working with our Year 9 leaders, Huck New, Daniel Dunn, Daisy Sawbridge, Tessa Sawbridge, Brad Balding and Max Renfren.

During the evening, there was a fantastic atmosphere with music provided by students from all our Year groups, with performances from the jazz band, Standard Proceedure, Faye Loann Jacka, Amber Symons, Ellyn Calverley and loads more. Lots of our musicians performed original music that will be released on our Academy record label later this term.

The dancers performed in the upstairs gallery through the evening, and all the artwork and photography created during the day was exhibited in the main gallery next to the professional works that were used for inspiration.

It was a great event and we are already looking forward to taking part again next year.
