Guest Blog post by Hasan Miah

Hello my name is Hasan Miah and I am 15 years old. I study at the Midlands Studio College and I am studying Engineering there. I also do Art every Friday which is for our Enrichment time. So I thought Beauty and Utility Arts would be a great place to do a work placement in.

I have been coming to Beauty and Utility Arts for 3 weeks now and I have been enjoying doing some bits of projects for older people. The reason why I wanted to do a placement at Beauty and Utility Arts is because I had heard that they do many range of projects and also being creative with arts and as I am learning art, I thought Beauty and Utility Arts would be beneficial to me. It would also get me improved on my arts and gain more skills as I keep on doing it.
