STUDENT PROFILE

JESS HALL What do you enjoy most about your course? How everyone feels welcome. Anything goes here. What’s your favourite thing about The Northern School of Art? The atmosphere. It’s not like any other college where there’s just plain walls. Here, as you can see, there are things all over to inspire you. What are your next steps? I’m going to Camberwell in London to study Illustration. What do you enjoy most about your course? I didn’t realise how much I’d change in style and how much I’d learn. There’s so much you don’t get taught in Art at school and if you want to be an industry professional, then I think this is the best option where you get taught at the age of 17 things that you wouldn’t learn in the industry until you’re really experienced.
