“After years of graphic design and painting and selling commissions I wanted to push the envelope further and decided to do a Master of Fine Arts at Whitecliffe. After completing that, I realised in order to pursue a career in the arts it would be beneficial to gain business studies in the field, so I’m now studying arts management,” says second year Arts Management student Kim Shaw.
The low-residency approach of the masterate programmes at Whitecliffe means Kim, a graphic designer for over 20 years, has been able to continue practising graphic design over the last three years while studying.
“The MFA has hugely impacted on my art practice and I’m now very excited about the prospects and possibilities within the wider world of arts management which was previously unknown to me.”
Kim says she continues to find Whitecliffe supportive, contemporary and in touch.
“I really enjoy the challenge of masters study and the broad ranging access to knowledge and experience that Whitecliffe offers.”
