Aidan Stephen is a 4th year student at Edinburgh College of Art, studying BA (Hons) Painting.

"I was drawn to Edinburgh because of strong family links; I’m the third generation to go to Art College."

My programme

"Edinburgh is a beautiful city with great facilities. I’ve also found that the tutors are incredible and very knowledgeable, the diversity of talent here is great. I enjoy delving in to painting in both technical and academic research."

The tutors are incredible and very knowledgeable, the diversity of talent here is great.

Aidan Stephen 3rd year, Painting (BA)

"For me the most challenging aspect is thinking about painting and academic work at the same time. So far, my favourite course has been an elective on Artists Books - it was simply brilliant."
