I went to an event this afternoon at the Prince’s Drawing School at which the Prince of Wales announced its change of name to the Royal Drawing School. I found it an unexpectedly impressive event. First, because of the quality of work by former students on display. Second, because of the recognition that a personal project of the Prince to support the teaching of drawing is now being converted into a long-term and permanent fixture of art teaching. And third, because it is now no longer a fringe experiment, but a mature project with obvious benefits and broad support.
