The A-level (year 12) art-students at my kids school had an exhibition of their works in the school foyer this past week. I photographed a few I thought was good. There was quite a bit more, but they didn't quite speak to me. All the work was accompanied by sketchbooks and descriptions of the creative process involved.
These artworks are mostly not something I would personally buy or put in my house but I can appreciate what they are saying and I am impressed with the fact that 16-year olds can produce work like this.
May their art-futures be bright!
