A student experience: Suzi Lechner

"Art and creativity has been a continued passion of mine since early childhood. Because I started a family at a young age tertiary education was not an option for many years, plus the logistics of long distance travel for further study also provided too many obstacles. With the discovery that the Byron Community collage offers a Certificate III course in Visual Arts I was compelled to sign up and without a doubt it was the best decision I could have ever made.

This has been a year filled with sustenance for my soul. To be fully immersed in the creative process over a wide range of mediums, under the guidance of such knowledgeable and supportive teachers, amongst a group of fellow students from a wide range of backgrounds, all in the local town of Mullumbimby. I feel very blessed to have had such an opportunity, both challenging and highly rewarding on a technical and personal level. I would recommend this course to others who may have a desire for creative expression."
