November & The December 2012 Creative Performing Arts
at Truro School
THE BURRELL THEATRE
Programme of Events I QU M V A
A programme of delightsâ€Ś I very much believe that one of the best ways of giving children confidence, a sense of purpose and a desire to keep on learning, is to stimulate them more generally and not just to focus on the basics of a good education. All subjects play their part but there are few activities more likely to make you want to develop further your talents and potential than the arts in all their forms. We are blessed at Truro School with access to the highest quality of music, drama and art in such superb venues as the Burrell Theatre, the Chapel and the Heseltine Gallery. This, combined with inspirational teaching and talented children, provides a rich menu of the arts which informs and stimulates all our education. I am therefore delighted that these opportunities are now to be showcased under this impressive programme which will enrich our lives. P K Smith Headmaster The Burrell Theatre

Hannah Woodman Hannah is a contemporary British landscape painter. Based in Cornwall, she works out of her studio near St. Agnes, and is widely exhibited and collected both nationally and internationally. She says: “This exhibition is a collection of paintings and drawings made over the past two years exploring some of the defining landscapes of Cornwall. Beginning at the coast and working inland, I’ve found myself on a path from the wildness of the sea through the geography of rural isolation to the more pastoral and structured gardens that characterise the county as a home of botanical interest.”

‘Source – An Archaeology of Place’ This exhibition is about the time and place where science and art meet archaeology. My work speaks about the landscape of change and transition and becomes part of it. Representing light, absorbing it and changing it - employing the processes of alchemy, wind, erosion and time in its making.
Artist John O’Carroll Although based in Cornwall, John has spent much of his adult life abroad, working and exhibiting in America, The Netherlands, and Egypt. For the last 25 years he has also consistently worked as an archaeological illustrator in the Dakhla Oasis in Egypt’s Western Desert. Whilst there, John has developed his own contemporary art practise incorporating ancient techniques, such as Encaustic - using natural pigments with layers of wax.
