I may not have gone and done A-levels, but my btec has given me more than any collection of a-levels could ever have done. I’m going to get to do a FMP, and create something really special and start to actually make my own artwork/use my own ideas (little hint on the ideas I’ve got so far: it’s art, but it’s education and community art too, my favourites!) and then decide if I want to go to university, start up a business, or do both at the same time (I’m currently leaning towards the latter). Art’s taught me so much about using the skills I’ve already got, and learning new ones. All this sort of stuff is what I want to teach people; making clothes, making artwork, making stuff for yourself, just doing things from scratch all the time, and using it to fund future projects you want to do. I genuinely hope that one day arts education in general - for writers, musicians, artists, dancers, actors, everyone - will be even more easily accessible and widespread, because It’s done so much for me. (and might eventually help with what I’m struggling with at the moment!- I’m at a point where I need to make money, but all the experience I have in the arts doesn’t really apply to any job anyone my age can get!)
