|Course:||FINE ART A LEVEL|
I came to The Henley College from Icknield Community College. I chose to study art as I have always enjoyed it, and although I enjoy hyper realism to meaningful artwork, the course has been very inspirational and unpredictable. It has persuaded me to use art in various forms whether it be realistic or expressive, to create an atmosphere within my work and veer the viewer to feel how I feel and see what I want them to see.
I hope to take the skills I already know and the skills I have acquired through this course (as well as my other courses) to university where I hope to be studying Games Art at Staffordshire University. I think it will be interesting trying something new and veering away from more subjective art forms.
There is a lot more freedom than there was at GCSE. You are given more space to create sculptures and paintings allowing you to explore and discover your preferred mediums and the teachers are usually supportive of this.
