Life's too short to make sacrifices." Kim found what spins her wheels by taking several ACE classes in both clay and glass. "I realised 3D art was my passion, so I took the plunge and enrolled in this degree. Our first year class was an exceptional team of motivated adults with creative energies sparking off each other." "The surprise to me is how much we have learned in theory. I didn't realise how much impact art has on life and culture in general. Personally I have also been really enriched and expanded....and pushed out of my comfort zone. My biggest challenge is drawing. I don't like to draw. But the tutors extend you so you can go there." "This course is a fantastic empowering experience. After my degree, I want to travel then return and set up a multi-media studio for doing installations."
