Degree students inspired by international artists

Coca_workshopWEB1York College 3D Design Craft degree students attended a talk by artists Susan Halls and Anthony Shaw in collaboration with the Centre of Ceramic Arts (CoCA) in York’s Art Gallery, followed by a master class by Susan Halls in the York College art workshops.

Currently based in the USA, Susan Halls' work is collected internationally. The students were inspired by her work, as well as her interest in their own work, much of which will be on display in their degree show at York St John University in June 2016.

Gaby Lees from the York Museum Trust said: “It is wonderful that York Art Gallery’s partnership with York College has allowed us to offer such an enriching experience for our visitors.”
