I am currently in college studying Foundation in Art and Design in my local town of Barnsley (England), I have just applied for University for Huddersfield, which has a institute in Barnsley. I went for BA (Hons) Art & Design (Interdisciplinary):
I chose this course because it allowed me to stay in my home town and also because its a diverse course teaching more than what an illustration or a Fine Art course would teach. My view was that if I could learn from a few areas instead of just 2D images I could broaden my skills and have a better chance at landing jobs.
I am wanting to be an illustrator and taking this course was partly for this job choice, but also, like I said before, to give me more choices (i.e. making 3D models of things for a film company or story boards). I think its too late to go back.
My question would be, has any of you (had) taken a course similar to this where it learns the student various workshops? I just hope I havent messed things up by thinking more the better, or not having to move as the deciding factor : /
So what course are/did you take?
