I chose MakeArt as I am really interested in all sorts of art related activities. I thought it would be the ideal place for me to do my work experience. It has been a very enjoyable and new experience in which I had many things to do. I was never bored at all. I learnt many skills during my time at MakeArt. Skills such as being able to communicate with people who I had not met before and being able to carry out tasks that I was set were really important.
It was fun being able to work in an environment which was relaxing but at the same time built up my confidence. It gave me an idea what working and running a business was like and what things need to be done. I loved making children’s kits in preparation for Halloween and Christmas. I also reorganised where all the equipment was kept and learnt about decoupage and pottery painting.
I would recommend anyone to come to MakeArt if they are looking to do some work experience or if they just wanted to do some creative work one day. I know that I will come to MakeArt more often as there is a wide range of things to do for all ages. It is great, just what Exeter needs!
