Live projects allow you to experience potential professional careers. Projects have included ‘Circus’, with outcomes ranging from performance art, costume design, illustration and 3D installation for an exhibition. ‘Graffiti’ projects also resulted in a spray painted Skate Park and the designing of children’s toys which were sold in Topshop, Metrocentre.

STUDENT PROFILE

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!
