WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT KING’S CROSS?
WHAT ARE THE TUTORS LIKE?
I love the building, and it’s great that everyone can get together and collaborate- you’re never two feet away from another artist. WHAT ARE THE OTHER STUDENTS LIKE?
Everyone’s so different: it’s such an international atmosphere- perfect surroundings for studying art. It’s like there’s someone from every walk of life.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE POTENTIAL STUDENTS?
They’re great, and they know what they’re talking about: trust them, and you’ll be okay. HOW IS LONDON LIFE?
It’s great to be in the city: it really where all of the action is. Love it! HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR COURSE?
It’s amazing, and I love the challenege. I would definitely reccommend! ANY WORDS OF WISDOM?

LAUREN BISHOPP Fine Art: 4D, BA (Hons.)
LAUREN BISHOPP IS A SECOND YEAR FINE ART STUDENT, WHOSE WORK HAS BEEN SHOWN IN A NUMBER OF EXHIBITIONS THROUGHOUT THE CITY. SHE TALKS TO US ABOUT HOW TO GET NOTICED ON THE ART WORLD CIRCUIT “I really feel that people don’t have enough ambition. I think that everyone should think highly of themselves, otherwise no-one else will” “Going to private views a couple of times a week is a great way to get your face out there and meet like-minded people: the last one I was at, I collected twelve business cards. Not bad!” “It’s surprising how much you can learn from Central Saint Martins- we definitely have all the resources you’d expect from a Central London art school: one word of advice, don’t forget that, more often than not, your tutors are practicing artists, too!” “Don’t be put off by other people in your class- there will always be people that seem ultra-connected and that they get given things effortlessly. Work hard yourself and you’ll definitely get results: even creating your own solo shows is a wonderful way of getting your stuff out there.”
