A Level Fine Art (Biology and English Literature)
Previous Institution: Priory School

Art at Shrewsbury Colleges Group is so expansive, it’s not just all about portraiture. Your ideas can be endless and the teachers allow you to explore all forms. I really enjoy A Level Art, it’s something I do at College and a hobby for me at home.

Printmaking Workshop

I have learnt many new techniques whilst on the printmaking course with Jay. We have been able to explore individual ideas with just the right amount of support and guidance in a relaxed and creative environment. I am excited to continue printing at home, having discovered a process I love.

Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design
Previous Institution: Priory School

Art is the subject that I felt most passionate about and I wanted to study it as a vocational course because I felt A Levels were not for me. I work on art whenever I can, at College and at home. I especially love working with charcoal and I was given the freedom to use this medium often.
