Level 3 Art & Design

“Some of my work was on display in College reception when it was spotted by the Managing Director of a local animation company, Kuro Dragon.

He was so impressed he contacted my tutor to ask if I’d be interested in a work experience placement one day a week. Of course I said yes!

I’ve already been thrown in at the deep end and I’m getting a great feel for working the industry.”
