Ryan - UAL Level 1 Diploma in Art & Design

I came to Level 1 Art and Design after a negative experience at school. On the course I found that I had the freedom to make work in different ways and learn more about the job I wanted to do. I received specialist support for my dyslexia which really helped to grow my confidence in myself and my creative work.
