As a past student of TCDT, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to become a member. For me, art is something I have always been interested in. After my A level in fine art, I took a year out and worked as an assistant in the art department of a boarding school. Having completed a range of workshops with the trust previously, I am currently studying for my undergraduate degree in social sciences, but plan to apply for an MA in art management next year. In my free time, I continue to paint and utilise the skills TCDT has taught me over the years, for example, incorporating gilding into my artwork. I would recommend the workshops to anyone interested in pursuing a creative career, or simply if you enjoy making art, and learning from specialist artists in their professions!
