More about the exams and immediately after. I think getting the opportunity to go to Art College threw me. I came from an ordinary working class family, and was just expecting to go get an ordinary job and earn some money. The Art school thing threw open a door I wasn't expecting, I had no clue what to do. Dad was great about it, he said you go, but like me he had no idea about careers in art. In fact the art teacher gave solid, realistic advice...if a little on the downside. I remember what a relief it was when I decided not to go the art college, and just find myself a job.
