It allowed me to develop my own approach to the discipline of painting, equipping me with both discipline-specific skills, and a range of transferable ones, too. It provided me with the experience and confidence to go on to my MA." -Elizabeth Vicary“I am really grateful for all of the support and encouragement provided during my three years at the School of Art, Architecture and Design and to have had such an enriching education. Having tutors like Patrick Ward, Mel, Jonathan, Galia and Ben Cain was amazing and the critical direction they provided and professional relationships we had were unlike any of the ones my friends at other London art schools have had. I think working in studios was one of the best aspects of studying at London Met and I really benefited from learning in this environment.”Grace Bradford
