Having visited twice during open days, I was greatly inspired by the diverse range of creativity and the overall atmosphere of the campus… WSA sits in a beautiful parkland setting and is only a minute's walk away from the historic and scenic Winchester city centre which is full of inspiration for the art community to thrive.
