After my A-levels I spent a year doing an art & design foundation course at GCADT (Glamorgan Centre of Art & Design Technology), during which we were told to keep a PRD, aka a Personal Reflective Diary.
In my PRD I wrote about the projects I worked on, the artists I studied and the places I visited, with a few sketches thrown in along the way.
This afternoon I found my PRD inside a long forgotten, buried box in my mum’s back room. Having spent the rest of the afternoon reading through it and marvelling at the effort I clearly put into the thing, I had to give it a little breath of life on my blog, so here are a few of the spreads…
And some specific projects:
Here we had to paint what we saw when we put packaging behind patterned glass (I think they’re still doing this exercise there!)
It’s clear to me now why I’m unable to go on holiday anywhere without keeping a visual diary. I’m the only person I know who takes prit-stick, scissors, tape and colouring pencils in their case! (The diary and pens go with me onto the plane, obviously, so that I can keep entertained. Some of the other items don’t exactly make it through security!)
