Art Foundation & Degree Applications
Following on from the Art Department’s success with eight Upper Sixth pupils gaining first choice places at leading Art College’s and Architectural Schools in the preceding school year, a talk equipped with helpful information packs was held by Mr Twohig and Mr Parnham on the evening of Thursday 19th September aimed specifically to prepare those of us in our year considering studying Art after Sixth Form.
This talk centred around Fine Art, Film, Photography and Architecture applications, choosing which open days at Art Colleges to visit, the content in the personal statement and practical portfolio, particularly the format and what to include and, what to leave out. Past pupils recommendations were given and college destinations in the U.K., Europe (particularly Paris and Florence) and America (New York and California) were explained in terms of best fit.
Overall, it was a helpful and informative evening providing us with clarity and insight into the myriad aspects of the application processes.
