Students at University Campus Barnsley (UCB) visited York Art Gallery to learn more about Picasso’s ceramics.

Students had a great opportunity to learn about a wide variety of artistic responses to some of the most important ceramic work Picasso produced.

The collection was supported by extensive archives, as well as historical collections of ceramics with the aim of promoting the understanding and enjoyment of this important area of British Modernism.

HND Art and Design student Hannah Parrott, 29, of Doncaster Road, said: “The exhibition was great. I enjoyed exploring Picasso’s ceramics and the experience was hands-on. I appreciated learning about the history of art and ceramics.”

Evan Wood, Art, Photography and Fashion Higher Education Curriculum Leader, added: “It’s good for the students to gain insights and tips into the industry they have chosen to develop a career in. York Art Gallery offered a fantastic collection of work across a range of disciplines for students to explore and respond to.”
