STUDENT PROFILE

KASEY STAINSBY What do you enjoy most about your course? The best thing is all the different opportunities available to us and we get to experiment with lots of different things. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? Everybody’s really nice and we’ve all come from different backgrounds. The atmosphere is great too. What are your next steps? I want to go onto the Level 3 Art and Design course here after this, which will help me further my skills in art and to see what’s best for me to progress onto for my future career. What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t know how much I’d actually learn! I’ve gained so many new skills I didn’t even know existed. For example, at the moment we’re making 3D mud rock casts which I would have never had the opportunity to do before I came here.
