Today is our last day of scheduled lessons in Next Gen. It doesn’t feel like it, and these 2 years have flown over.
I didn’t intend to join the course as I was told I wasn’t going to be good at it since first year included a lot of technical and mathematical work, and I didn’t do computer science in school; but the second I realised A levels wouldn’t be right for me I tried this course and am so happy I did.
This year has been less about learning, and more about applying our skills. For me, this was concept art. I have used it to develop skills and techniques in digital art, as well as decide what I want to do in university. I have made great friends and memories during this time and think going with my gut was the right thing to do.
As well as that, I made great stuff too- being a part of people’s group projects made me feel as though my art was needed. I am still learning a lot about how to achieve what is in my head on the screen in front of me.
I am beginning to get excited about what is ahead of me now, university, jobs and experiences. I hope to have as much fun there.
