One of my Grade 12 students, Candice, has recently been featured in a national magazine called “The South African Artist” March/April 2012 (issue no.3).
She was interviewed in my classroom by the editor and the managing editor of the magazine, Harry Lock and Linda Hodnett. So I was aware of the article that was written about her artwork. The article features some of her Grade 10 & 11 artworks and her end of Grade 11 exam piece which was comprised of letters and drawings.
Click here (part1), here (part two) and here (part 3) to see excerpts from this artwork. Click here to read a copy of the article in the magazine. To my surprise one of my ex-students, Annchen Naude, was featured on Page 6 and 7 of the magazine!
She was recently awarded first prize (R10 000) for a large charcoal drawing submitted to the KZNSA members’ exhibition. She is presently studying Fine Arts at Rhodes University.
