what they've been up to...

Some pictures of students work from the Foundation show a few weeks ago...

























I helped all these students in one way or another (I hope!) teaching them structures, helping to solve problems, discussing ideas. Some needed step by step instruction, some just a gentle push in the right direction. (Not that there necessarily is a 'right' direction of course, but there are definitely different ways to think about things, to develop ideas, and sometimes its little things that can spark an imagination...) Whatever my contribution, it was so rewarding seeing the final pieces in the show, I'm so proud of what they've all achieved! 

(And on a totally unrelated note; imagine having a house like this!)

I miss being a student. Art school was the best times I've had. Only I wished I was more out going back then and more willing to take risks. It seems you're more creative that time too. Looking back I had really good ideas then, looking at these works I miss those times and wish I was there as one of them.
