Being at FIT has been such a learning experience. My skills have improved significantly since I’ve started my class. Before FIT I didnt even know I had any drawing skills at all. When I started my classes and realized how much drawing was entailed, I thought I couldn’t do it! However, I decided to practice and attempt to improve my skills. Now when I look at my floor plan for the final project and compare it to my first floor plan I can see how much the program has helped me. My lines are straight, I am able to add details to furniture and I’ve learned how to properly mark furniture. I’m submitted everything I have worked on in my portfolio and I feel more than confident in my work. If I wasn’t involved in this precollege program I would be completely lost when submitting my portfolio. They would have asked for a 1/4 inch = 1 foot scale and I would have just been like “whaaaaaaat 0_O?” Because I am in the program I have all the correct tools needed to prepare a portfolio! I probably would have never applied to any school that asked for a portfolio if I didn’t take these classes.
I see a huge difference in my work and I hope that my drawings and skills just keep getting better. I still need to work on drawing furniture into my plans because sometimes I change my whole idea just because I can’t get it on paper. I also need to work on picking fabrics and colors, it’s my favorite part but I love it so much that it’s hard to make a choice!
I’m so grateful to be apart of precollege programs and to be able to learn more about my major. I am so passionate about interior design and being at FIT has completely opened my mind.
