Harry Johnson-Firth enrolled at Harrogate College five years ago and throughout his time here, has studied a variety of different courses. Beginning with Foundation in Art and Design, Harry has continued his learning journey and rounded off his Masters in Creative Practice with his solo exhibition, held in August 2015.
“I chose to study at Harrogate College due to the abundance of specialist facilities on offer, as well as a wide variety of disciplines available within the art department.”- Harry Johnson-Firth.
“I have loved having the freedom of being able to choose materials and topics and the flexibility of fitting your intended working projects to the brief assessment.”
This hard working student has produced an outstanding amount of work throughout his time at Harrogate College and is an ambassador for progressing from further education into higher education.
“During my time here, I have enhanced my ability to articulate and communicate through my Art forms as well as improving my professional conduct in the Art scene. I have now launched myself as an independent artist and hope to be able to support and market my own sculptures.”
The staff at Harrogate College are experts in their fields and are absolutely passionate about providing an excellent working environment.
“It’s been fantastic to be able to work on live projects across the different courses, whilst having continual and greatly appreciated support from the team of staff. With their help, I have developed a new confidence in my own ability.”
Harry now intends to study Horticulture in order to help him further develop his practice, by learning more about traditional sculpture methods such as stone carving and hot metal casting.
