It's never too late to learn
"It's been interesting to see how art is being taught in Australia at a basic level and to think about how I could teach. It's been a very supportive environment and it’s given me the opportunity to expand as an artist."
Internationally-renowned Taiwanese glass and ceramic artist and mature-aged student Tai Chiu Mei (Aisha), says TAFE NSW gave her tools to grow as an artist.
Aisha moved to Australia to live in the Nambucca Valley with her husband, a wrought-iron artist. She completed a Certificate I in Spoken and Written English at TAFE NSW to develop her English-language skills.
"I wanted to learn more English and to meet people in my new community. What has also happened, is that I have found a new medium and I’m experimenting working with felt. I have really enjoyed coming into the classroom again and learning new skills in art."
