My Work Experience Diary

By Hannah Liddle

I started my work experience with Capture (the director is also my Dad!) on the 16th of March, a week before lock down. I started with some admin work, which helped me learn how the company works. Later that day, we visited a site that was close to opening. I found it very interesting and started to sketch some of the features I could see. I was taught how to create perspective drawings, which is very useful in interior design. This will also help me with my GCSE art.

However, on my journey home that day I felt ill and, because of the situation at the time, I decided that I needed to self isolate. Since the boss is my Dad, we were able to spend the next week continuing my work experience but from our home office. In that week, I learned perspective sun study, elevation sun study and continued to practice perspective drawing by re-drawing the sketches I made on my first day. We also spent time in our garden drawing and sketching work I could send to my art teacher. I enjoyed sitting in the sun and learning about interior design and sketching.

By the end of the week my school was closing down due to the virus so I continued sketching. I produced a lot of drawings during work experience that taught me a lot about perspective drawings. It has also added to my GCSE coursework, as well as allowing me to choose architecture as a topic for my coursework in art. I thoroughly enjoyed my week with Capture and learned a lot in a short space of time, and can’t wait to show off my skills in art class!
