|Holly working with a group of club members.|
I really enjoyed seeing the wide range and high standard of work the students produced and seeing the groups commitment to give up their Saturday mornings, to attend the club made it a pleasure to also give up my Saturday morning lie-ins to help the club.
Through the different sessions, I helped with I also felt like I learned a lot of techniques and was even able to use parts of the university I wouldn’t normally come across, like the photography studio.
I also learnt a lot during the masterclass with artist Zack Mclaughlin, this was particularly interesting as he explained about the route he had taken since graduating university, to get to where he is now. This was inspiring as I have just graduated and am about to head out into the exciting, yet scary,world of working in the creative industry.
Working with the club has been really enjoyable and I wish everyone all the best with wherever their futures take them. If I ever get the opportunity to and working with young people and the arts in the future, it will definitely be something I would get involved in.
