Hello I finished a foundation degree in fine art with distinction. However, the majority of the course I hated so I decided not to begin a degree in fine art. Job prospects and money being a major issue as well.
I volunteered at two separate galleries, began to sell my paintings In one, and have a paid part time Job in the other. I'm beginning to get a collection of paintings together to have further shows etc In other local galleries. However I also have to work another job in order to keep myself afloat. I'm reconsidering going back to uni. Have any of you had experience with getting jobs with a fine art degree?
Also I've recently seen a graduate diploma in visual arts at west dean college, would there be any chance of me getting on a graduate course without a degree?
What would you do? I don't know whether to stick with what I am doing, and continue to build up a name for myself locally or whether going back to uni would help. Or whether that would make no difference. I'm 21.
