Last year we all visited the Excel centre to go to the UCAS event. It was an event for art schools and school students who are thinking of having an art future. There were so many different schools to view that I was overloaded with tote bags and prospectus'. I was confused at the end of the day which school I actually liked and was interested in. To be honest they all explained an amazing and exciting idea of a school but everyone can say they're an amazing school. I think what's best for me is to go to open days and degree/ foundation shows to show me what is actually on offer because I don't think going to talks really benefited me. I get really over excited and inspired quite easily from a school that says we have so many spaces for you, facilities and freedom...etc. All of them said that! Overall, I think that it did help me in the fact that I found and discovered different schools, but they all said the same thing really so I need to go to schools myself that provide the courses I want and see if they're good for me. It was also nice to speak to students who go to the colleges already, this inspired me and excited me even more to go to foundation! I didn't really have an idea of what I wanted to do and I still don't so I'm yet to see.

We went to Chelsea school of art for an event. The event consisted of a few talks and a tour around the school. I did not enjoy the talks at all. The lecturers who spoke to us were teachers and tutors who taught in the school. They did not talk about the school at all. They only spoke about their work and their life. I understand that maybe their experience at the school may have inspired them and encouraged their independent work but this did not help me in the slightest and I was starting to fall asleep by the end of it. After this talk we had a tour of the school. This was actually really fun and it was very exciting to see all the spaces that the students can make their art in. It looked like a dream to be able to have a white space with white walls all to yourself to create your work all day. But the tour did mainly consist of the library and the woodwork dept, which was interesting, however it didn't really help me because that's not what I want to do. But then again, I still don't really know what I want to do. I either want to do textiles, fashion styling, graphic design, photography, film... and more things. Chelsea wasn't really the one for me after visiting the school.
