Foundations from the past:
Yesterday I had an interview at Hugh Baird College. I originally applied for the BTEC Extended diploma Art and Design but instead I have been offered a place (subject to an available place for a mature student) on the art and design foundation pre-degree course. Yippee. I was given a tour of the art department, was privy to students work (WOW) it was a great day. I had to take some of my work with as the course is predominantly drawing. It has been many years since I have drawn in such detail and depth, all I could take were several sketch books, some wall hangings and my journal quilts. The chap who interviewed me asked if I could do some drawing and let him see it in a few weeks but said he could see I had potential from the little doodles in the sketch books. Here is my first attempt and what better subject matter my adorable shoes. I am so excited at the prospects of doing the course which starts in September, please keep your fingers crossed for me that a place will arise and it will be mine.
