Changed my life
I chose the MFA because it is studio-based….it felt like the perfect course and I didn’t need to pick a specialism.
The study is intense with small class group numbers and great tutors who have a deep understanding of what art is. There are opportunities to learn new techniques, try different mediums, and have your own studio space. One of the best aspects has been the opportunity to work with professionals in mediums, such as stone carving and ceramics, that I had not considered before.
In art, you have to take the risk and be serious about it. West Dean College has changed my life and with the experience I have gained and the connections I have created, I feel comfortable to be able to continue to make art and be a practicing artist.
