Sonic workshop at Southdowns College
It was really exciting for me to have the chance to run a workshop with my old college class. I studied my Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at Southdowns college before coming to AUB and it was through that course that I became more aware of my future aspirations as a practicing artist. The art department at Southdowns is home to a superb set of lecturers that not only encouraged my educational development but also inspired me to pursue my aspirations.
