Student Experiences

“I am a graduate of the National College of Art & Design. Specialising in illustration, I qualified in Graphic Design. On leaving College I worked in advertising agencies, got married, had children and developed my skills as a professional artist. In the meantime technology passed me by. I applied and secured a place on the Multimedia course at Kinsale College. I was a little apprehensive returning but I needn’t have of worried. Thanks to the wonderful teacher who makes time for everybody. Be it as a group or as individuals no creative or technical problem is too small or too big and is treated with respect and encouragement. All the students have different life experiences. Some come straight from school and will have developed computer skills but little design knowledge, which the teacher brings out. Others like me want to update and improve lost skills.”
