STUDENT PROFILE

CHLOE WHITTLE

What are you going to do after college?
I’m looking to do concept art at University once I finished my course here.
Can you tell us something about your course that you didn’t know before coming here? I know now that this was the best choice for me to progress with my career

What’s your favourite thing about CCAD? This seemed like the best way to get back into education as I’ve been out of the educational loop for 5 years and this college seemed like the best one to come to. I wanted to get myself university ready and no other place seemed good enough to do that.
What do you enjoy most about your course? Concept art is my area and with the diversity that this course offers it was also perfect to develop myself in an area whilst also learning some new things that I wouldn’t normally think to try.

Tutors, all fine artists in their own right, help students to explore the work of others through educational visits to local and national galleries
