Winning in Creative Arts

Wise ASSC recently caught up with the winner of our Semester 1 subscriber competition – Zoya Marakova!

Zoya is in her first year of Bachelor of Creative Arts (Visual Arts) at Bendigo Campus, where her course also includes a Art History Minor.

Zoya is a fantastic artist, and has been painting and selling her paintings and prints for a few years now. She chose her course because she wanted to meet like minded people, learn new skills and get access to the equipment and specialist knowledge. Though classes are mostly online at the moment, she says “I’m really looking forward to getting into Printmaking studio once the University fully re-opens.”

Zoya said the best part of studying at La Trobe is the fantastic knowledgeable staff, who are passionate about their subjects, approachable and happy to help.

For students starting uni, Zoya says “Enjoy! Make new friends. Try something new there are so many interesting subjects on offer. Find out about various support services offered by University and don’t be reluctant to ask for help if you need it.
