Katie has recently been accepted onto a Degree course at the prestigious Glasgow School of Art. “Coming onto this course I knew I loved Fine Art and I wanted to study this more in-depth, but I didn’t know how many different specialist areas I would experience in Limavady. The variety in subjects and the freedom to explore a range of different themes and projects has helped me find my love for contemporary 3D work and sculpture. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about studying Art & Design. School can’t give you the experience this course does. It has really prepared me for University and has helped me achieve my dream of going to Glasgow School of Art!”Katie Curry
