A new semester dawns for the BA in Graphic Arts at Winchester School of Art and we have another exciting schedule of events for ‚ÄėInsights from the Field‚Äô. As our year 3 students approach graduation, we have tried to tailor the programme to support this process, offering opportunities for students to talk to key industry professionals to help them shape portfolios that meet their needs.

Sessions will be on Wednesdays from 10 to 12.00 in LTA and many will be followed by a workshop in the third year studios.

Here is the full programme;
