Seven Art and Design students from Elmwood College are ready to take the next step on their educational journey, as they have been offered places on degree level courses for next year.
The students are leaving Elmwood on a high after passing their HNC Art and Illustration course with flying colours and taking part in an exhibition, which received rave reviews from Professor Richard Demarco, who officially opened the exhibition.
Students Rosalind Crawford, Tracy McBride, Daniel Penman and Larry Vissochi have been accepted on to the First Year General course at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee University. While Victoria Caine is continuing her studies at Moray School of Art, Emma Swindell is to study Interior Design at Duncan of Jordanstone and Craig Shields is continuing his studies at Abertay University where he will study a Degree in Graphic Design.
Emma and Rosalind expressed their thanks to the their lecturers saying, “ We are leaving Elmwood with increased confidence and a whole new range of skills to take on the challenges of university.”
Lecturer Susan Murray said, “All of these students were extremely committed, with a very clear vision of their career paths. I am delighted that all their hard work has paid off and they are continuing with their career aspirations - I’m sure they will all go from strength to strength.”
The students who apply to the art and design courses at Elmwood come from all ages and backgrounds. Some want a change of career, others to fulfil a life-time ambition to go to University, while many simply decide to continue their formal education at college rather than school.
