We caught up with Marie-Aimee Fattouche who is currently studying MA Fine Art at Chelsea.

Describe you experience at Chelsea in 3 words.      

Intense, Stimulating, Creative

What do you enjoy most about studying at Chelsea?         

What I enjoy the most about studying at Chelsea is the fact that the MA Fine Art Course is really a self-directed program, we have great tutorials and lectures, but the rest of the time is our choice to make the most of it in our studios.

Where do you live at the moment and what do you enjoy most about being in London?

I live near Brixton, it takes me about 20 minutes to get to school which is really good.

What I enjoy the most about London is that it is such a big city that you can never get bored, there are artistic events every week all over the city. It is a very dynamic creative city.

What has been your greatest challenge so far on the course and how have you overcome it?    

My greatest challenge has been to put my art out there for people to see, and I love it! I love having daily feedback on my work from the other students.

What has your experience on the course been like so far?           

It is only the beginning of a short year, but I know I have already met people with whom I will definitely collaborate in the future after I graduate.

Also thanks to the other students, we are going to do a big exhibition at the end of January outside of the college. It will be a great opportunity to show our work to a different audience and the wider public.

What do you see yourself doing after you graduate, what are your career ambitions?

Who’s not dreaming of living off their art?! I also wish to be a teacher, I like sharing and hope I could work with students helping them make the best of their creative self.

What would you say to someone who is thinking about doing your course? Any advice?I would say go for it! It’s 11 months, really intense and it’s such a one-time life opportunity.

Don’t think too much, just do it!
