Here's my course update. For those that don't know I started my Cert IV Foundation Course in Interior Design at the end of last year. I was so excited to get into it and then I moved house...and it was Christmas...and I was away so it's been a slow start but still good. All in all I am loving it. I found it alot more challenging to start with than I thought I would. Getting the hang of art lingo and not having a class with students or a teacher to run ideas off was hard. I spent a lot of time worrying I wasn't doing something right etc but I'm starting to feel more confident. I am nearly finished my first module and so excited to send that away and get feedback...hopefully of the encouraging kind!
I really had no idea what to expect not having had any background in this area but I have learnt so much already especially about colour...there has been ALOT of painting and I've almost used up my paint already...with 5 more modules to go!!! Will just have to order more.
I am doing the course through ISCD www.iscd.edu.au here is a little of their blurb.

The focus at iscd really is on you – we want to nurture your talent, honour your personal journey and help you realise your goals.
Our courses are life changing – so many of our graduating students have gone on to forge successful careers.
I have found the support from staff so good. I was a little worried about correspondence but unless I went to TAFE or Uni which were both full time courses I didn't have any options in Perth and I really needed to be able to work full time while I did it. There is a group of people in Perth who study with ISCD and organise catchups so I'm looking forward to meeting them and getting to know people with like minded interests.
I'll keep you updated along the way but for now here are a few pics of what I've been doing.
