Disposable camera photos The Hague hotspots Out of the blue

Central Saint Martins

Saturday, 10 August 2013

The reason i went to London last week was a short course at Saint Martins. I attended the Portfolio Surgery class for 16 - 18 year olds. It was to (of course) prepare your portfolio, get feedback on your work and get information about art academies and portfolios. So it was a very useful week! To be honest also a bit disappointing. It was nice, but not worth all the money. The thing we did for three days in a row was drawing, while i don't even like drawing that much and i'm just no good at it. Thursday we visited galleries and working spaces of artists, which gave me a lót of inspiration! The last day we made a collage based on a painting from the National Gallery which we saw the day before.
Although the course was a bit disappointing (i expected to get a half filled portfolio after this week, while i didn't even make one piece for my portfolio), i don't regret going there! I really had the bést times and met sooo many wonderful people. It was quite hard to return to Holland again and leave these beautiful people and the beautiful London behind. I also got tons of inspiration and information about portfolios, and i'm actually considering studying at CSM next year!

Down below you can see some photos i made at school, and on the last photo you can see our final projects: the collages. The third photo was made during a break i spent (just like every other break) with the o-so-lovely Jess, Matty and Rufus. I miss them :(((

I totally understand you but you know to make a portfolio you need more than one week. For my study I had to do some portfolio like that and i needed more than 3 month and i think for CSM you definitely need more time. I though in Holland there are also some really good school , too ?l. And I think it was a really good decision to take this course at CSM , I wish I could do this :) Anyway I'm really happy to read ur experience and please share more about this if you're going there again. Have a lovely weekend <3

I've heard a lot of people saying that some of CSM courses aren't worth the money and is more about the name of the school, saying that I'm gland yo enjoyed London, it's a great place for inspiration :)

Ik kan inkomen dat je het niet zo leuk vond om te tekenen, wat je ook gewoon thuis kunt doen, maar als buitenstaander lijkt het me wel een hele ervaring!
