“I enjoyed this course because I got the chance to learn in four different art areas – Graphics, Ceramics, 3D Creative Design and Fine Art. As the course progressed I learnt more and more every day and towards the end I got to focus on one of the four subjects which allowed me to do independent learning and focus on something that really interested me. The learning environment here is great and I’ve learnt a lot since I came here.”

Amy hopes to follow a career that involves either Art and Design or Photography as these are the subjects that she finds most interesting.
