'One of the aspects I found really successful... I was unsure of what I wanted to do when I started the course and what specialism I wanted to work in and I hope the course would help me decide. Now that I have finished the course it has helped me gain a strong idea of what specialism I want to work in and where I want to be in the future.'
LIAM SIMPSON What do you enjoy most about your course? I just love how much freedom we get. We can explore any type of art with lots of encouragement. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? Before being a student here, I didn’t know how much support I’d get. It’s really helped me! What are your next steps? I'm going to the Northern School of Art University Level Campus in Hartlepool to study Textiles and Surface Design. What's surprised you about your time here? I didn’t expect it to be as wide range as it is, I was just expecting lots of drawing and painting but it’s so much more; it ranges from textiles to mix media and even fashion!
