If you've used all five choices for art college/uni on your UCAS application, and you haven't received any offers, you could still find a place using UCAS Extra – it's free!
Some of you will however still be waiting to hear if you've applied to Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and other colleges. Let's hope this is good news.
I did a poll in the Facebook Group and by email last week - did you take part?
There were a number of replies and one of the main issues I've discovered that holds you and others back with art portfolio for college application is procrastination. So as promised, I will use these topics to assist you.
It's useful if you can try to get a sense of what it is that's making you delay, procrastinate and take action.
Art and design. We've been thinking a lot of about art and design and how it sits in the school curriculum. We hear from some students telling us that art and design is always the subject that suffers if a student has to catch up time with another subject, time is usually asked to be taken from the art studies first. Now why is this? Are the skills learnt in art and design not seen to hold as much value as those in other subjects? Hold on....what skills do art and design teach you anyway?
