The course taught me how to explore many different creative genres and techniques. It also helped me prepare my portfolio for the National College of Art and Design. I received over 600 points for my portfolio and am now studying Fine Art and Education. I will be a fully qualified Art teacher when I graduate. I highly recommend this course because of how helpful it is and how it prepares you for working independently in college. The people you meet are also great.
