Next Generation of Artists from KCC

Julie Bennett

Julie Bennett is an HNC Fine Art student at Kensington and Chelsea College (2006-2007). She was selected by the Independent newspaper for an article in November 2006 entitled Saatchi’s New Stars, Brit Art the Next Generation after placing work on STUART, a website created by Charles Saatchi for students to display images of their work for free. The article showed a full page image of Julie and her work. The other nine students featured were all from MA or BA level fine art courses.

Julie and her work have since been featured in a German magazine and a Portuguese newspaper equivalent to the Independent. In addition, she has become a student representative for the Saatchi Gallery. Twenty-two of our students have put their work on STUART and as a result Saatchi has decided to profile Kensington and Chelsea College as the first college on their site providing information for future students.

Students from the Kensington and College HNC in Fine Art have progressed to prestigious London universities. If you would like to apply for the course, it will run again from September 2007 and interviews will be held from April onwards. Apply to e.winstone@kcc.ac.uk or artech.enquiry@kcc.ac.uk
