    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!”
