A chance to be more creative as graduates return to class

Rob George 9th Jul, 2022

ARTS graduates from the University of Worcester gave their insights to current students about what to expect from a career in the creative industries.

The TAKE5 event saw former students, who studied a variety of subjects, from Game Art to Illustration, return to the university to speak about their work.

TAKE5 is an annual event that caters for current students in the School of Arts on a wide range of subjects, including illustration, fine art, digital media production, graphic design, animation and game art.

Tobias Hickey, senior lecturer and course leader in illustration, who organised the event, said: “Our arts alumni provide crucial insights and advice on the skills, knowledge and attributes necessary to succeed as creative practitioners across the areas of arts degrees we teach.

“They also provide inspiration not only for our undergraduate students but also our staff who are incredibly proud of their achievements and are an essential link to the creative industries.

“Their enthusiasm and generosity to spend time with our current students is a credit to their commitment and support of the next wave of professional artists and designers,” he added.
