New art centre at Bournemouth & Poole College

New art centre at Bournemouth & Poole College

Art and Design are about to take on a fresh hue with the opening of a brilliant new £1m art and design centre at Bournemouth & Poole College. Remarkably, building work on the new block only began in May and it is being seen as a triumph of hard work and dedication of all the teams involved.

Colin Wills, estates manager at the college, said: “The building has been situated and created to make the most of ‘northern light’ which reduces glare, whilst providing soft and restful daylight for the artists.”

“It looks fantastic inside and as word spreads I have no doubt it will attract some great young talent from our region.” College principal Lawrence Vincent said: “Using our own resources we have been able to create an inspirational environment for our talented students.”

The first opportunity for potential students and parents as well as local people to check out the new centre will be on November 3 when an open evening is scheduled.
