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 :(((
