Advice from a former student (Sean McKendry, May 2014)

… A key thing to remember when it comes to art is to keep pushing yourself. If you are not taking those active steps to improve, then you will stay roughly at the same level you are now. This has been my philosophy since getting into this field in 2012, to always keep pushing myself. A good thing to keep you on your toes is to give yourself work. Make your own projects and collaborate with friends. This will allow you to do research, practice, and also get feedback on your own skills. Be open to suggestion and improve as you go. ESPECIALLY do this during the downtime after graduating if you have not found employment. There is no downside.
