“I chose Foundation Art, Design and Media because you are able to learn further skills that can be developed.
It also helps you to discover what path or medium works best for you and what your preferred specialism is.
This course involves workshops where you are able to test out different specialisms like textiles, print, mark making, 3D, graphics.
Then you have projects where you need to follow a brief and create your own work based on something of your choosing.
I hope to take what I have learnt to university and specialise in Fine Art, developing the skills I have learnt in foundation.
My ultimate career is to potentially be my own artist, working for myself.
This course has helped me not only to develop and decide what my strongest skills are it has helped me manage time skills and setting my own deadlines.
Foundation was a perfect fit for me because it helped me transition from a level to higher education, this will help me a lot in university when presented with briefs to work from.”
