Alexandra Park School
I had the pleasure of speaking to secondary year group students from Alexandra Park School in London.
Also in March I had the pleasure of speaking to secondary year group students from Alexandra Park School in London. An incredible reception the students gave me which always reconfirms to me the importance of art in schools.
Since 2013 I have visited over 20 different Primary and Secondary schools across the UK. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share some words to the students about my artistic journey.
Growing up I never felt art was seen as a “serious” subject in school, nor did I feel encouraged to pursue it after school. Now, I feel obligated in a dutiful way to go into schools and plant the seed of encouragement within the hearts of young creatives. Letting them know that it is possible to make a living through art, but most importantly, that peace and fulfilment can be found when you do what you love. Without us even knowing at first, doing what we wholeheartedly love eventually becomes a service to others and I truly feel it is one of the most selfless things we could ever do.
Sending lots of love to you all! Thank you for your continued support.
Be safe. Be well!
