‘Lessons in Form’ features the work of students from West Somerset College produced in response to the paintings of Tristram Hillier and Jenny Barron.

The students made sketches during a visit to the exhibitions Landscapes of the Mind: The Art of Tristram Hillier and Form and Fascination: Artworks by Jenny Barron. Then they worked with Jenny Barron to develop individual responses in watercolour.

The surreal exploration of form is central to the work of both Hillier and Barron and has been a powerful inspiration for the students.

“I was very impressed with how the students took inspiration from both the exhibitions and then produced such inventive and imaginative paintings in the unfamiliar (to them) medium of watercolour” Jenny Barron, Artist
