I’ve been helping out with teaching at Trent University now for a couple of years, it’s a great opportunity to keep involved with nurturing the creative talent of the future, passing on a few nuggets from my own experience and helping them develop their talent still further - something I’ve always enjoyed doing and found hugely rewarding.
This week saw the culmination of the students endeavours, with the public display of the year three students degree shows. I took the opportunity to have a good look round and survey the talent on show - especially as I had been given the task, as a judge, of picking out some of the most impressive work as ‘Best in Show’. Needless to say it was a tough task, the standard of work was excellent and a real encouraging fillip for the future.
Let’s hope the economy picks up and this bright new talent get’s the opportunity to demonstrate their skills to the wider world - I’m sure at their best they will add to any creative studio willing to give them a chance to prove themselves - good luck guys!
