Art & Design Taster Day

 On Monday 15th January, eight students went to DeMontfort University for an Art & Design Degree Taster day to experience first-hand what taking an Art degree could be like. The students experienced different creative activities in Graphics, Theatre production and Fine Art and got to meet a range of students and tutors from Loughborough, DeMontfort and Leicester Universities. The students enjoyed it, learned about why University courses are beneficial and found it a valuable experience.

Here is Vidhi’s account of the day: When I went to De Montfort University we did a lot of activities. My favourite one was fine art and graphics. It is my favourite because we used many things and it was fun to learn new things. Most things we did were in groups and some things were individual. We went to the university to experience how it is to go there and how life at university is. We also met real students who go there and they told us many things about themselves and about how it feels. For me it was really fun and challenging. I felt so glad and excited as we stepped out of the bus. It was so nice to be there. I enjoyed the day so much and I really hope I get another chance to go with everyone and have some more fun and learn more new things. Vidhi 8RUM
