Wahey Ithiliien! That is great. I pretty much took time out before my second year uni exams so technically I only did a year of English. In Oct 2007 I will go back to do my last two years so I will finish my degree (hopefully) but I have made a mistake too. I should be doing art. I only have GCSE art but I got an A in it, which along with Math was one of my worst grades so I dont know if they will think I didn't commit to art back then. That of course would be true because I didn't much like the teaching at school and I did the whole exam in the few weeks before the deadline.
So basially I dont have a portfolio for foundation and need to start working on one. I want to aim towards either fine art and sculpture or fashion so would you have any advice as to what to include in the portfolio and how many pieces, sketchbooks I should have? Should there be any projects? I.e. preliminary pieces running towards a final piece? How do I go about carrying out a project without teaching? I cant remember what we did at school. I think the teacher gave us a title and we went from there somehow. Should I do the same?
