Calling all creative minds! Warrington & Vale Royal College seeks its Young Artist of the Year
We caught up with former Hope Academy pupil and Digital Artist of the Year 2023 Tom Welsby, who impressed the judges with an incredible visualisation of a well-known scene from American Psycho. Tom, now studying on the college's popular Level 3 Art & Design qualification, looks back fondly on the competition and notes how much it helped to build his confidence. He said:
"It was my mum who encouraged me to enter Young Artist of the Year. She knew I wanted to create the American Psycho piece and this would be the perfect opportunity. Even if I hadn't won, entering the competition was such a good experience and the exhibition was great! I really liked seeing my work displayed in a professional setting. It solidified that this was the right college for me."
