From editing in the studio, meeting with artists and working in the gallery, Ellie Turner describes how no day is the same when studying Fine Art at UCA Farnham...
10.00am: we went to photocopy our passports ready for a class trip to Berlin we’re going on soon. We’re always getting out and about, seeing shows in London and once a year we go abroad.
After a trip to equipment hire to pick up a camera for the day, I start making. I’ve been working on a karaoke installation for an exhibition at Chelsea School of Art I’m taking part in.
2.00pm: A visiting artist comes to discuss what he’s creating for a curatorial space I help to manage. We were chatting for a few hours, finalising plans for when he starts making the work.
5.20pm: I leave the studio for the day. The structured day ends at 4.30pm but normally everyone stays until a bit later. I have a part-time job in Farnham town so I stay working in the studio (more editing) then start work at 5.30pm.
7.30pm: The weekdays are normally very long, but it’s always really rewarding and I wouldn’t change it. My days at uni are always different and it never gets boring!
