Campaign: To raise awareness of arts-based careers

Many people think art is a soft option at school and encourage children to pursue more academic subjects instead.

 

I didn't take art very seriously at school either, until I got to Year 9 and a teacher inspired me to explore my creative side.

 

There are so many fascinating and fun careers out there that art can lead to but all too often people say specialising in the subject means you won't get a good job.

 

I want to be an art teacher one day and am determined to encourage younger children not to write the subject off from an early age.
