My name is Bridget, student number 516784 and I am enrolled on the Visual Communications pathway with the Open College of the Arts.

I have previously completed Illustration One (www.bridgetsocacoursework.wordpress.com) and this, Creative Arts Today will be my next module. I intend to pick Graphic Design One as my third module.

I’m taking this degree because I’m a Creative who has accidentally got stuck in the life of an aeronautical engineer. It’s deathly dull and I want to escape, and the best way I can see to do that is with a degree!

I haven’t chosen this module for the best reasons. I’m about to embark on four months on the Falkland Islands with no capacity for art materials and an internet connection that is patchy at best so this looked like my best option for something that I would be able to move forwards with. But from flicking through the course manual I can see that my horizons could do with a little broadening and this will certainly do it, so, let’s be about it!
