A couple of weeks ago I wrote of a couple of students who exhibited a natural aptitude and talent for a particular professional practice. The other day I saw another student with a natural talent, this time for illustration. I really liked these illustrations: they made me smile. This was at Aylesbury High School.
There were also some excellent robust, life drawings, some of which were developed into textile pieces (Tracy Emin). They were a refreshing counterpoint to the large numbers of closely observed and painted portraits developed from digital photographs and the work of Jenny Saville, Lucien freud et al.
