CHELSEA WARTON What do you enjoy most about your course? I’m looking to do concept art at university once I finished my course here. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? I know now that this was the best choice for me to progress with my career. What are your next steps? This seemed like the best way to get back into education, as I’ve been out of the educational loop for 5 years and this college seemed like the best one to come to. I wanted to get myself university ready and no other place seemed good enough to do that. What's surprised you about your time here? Concept art is my area and with the diversity that this course offers, it was also perfect to develop myself in an area whilst also learning some new things that I wouldn’t normally think to try.
