I lived here for nine months between 28 June 1961 and 31 March 1962. It was where I ended my student days at the Central School of Art and where I began my freelance career as an illustrator. The building no longer exists and has been replaced by a new one.
'CNAA Principle Three', a diary drawing by John Vernon Lord, 26 May 1985
and published in Drawn to Drawing, Nobrow Press, 2014, page 156/157.
During the 1980s the
Council for National Academic Award’s Committee for Art and Design spent some
considerable time giving attention to the implementation of its Principle 3, which was concerned with
the overall balance and aims of programmes of study for art and design students.
I was on a Working Party
of the Committee that looked into the relevance of this principle to courses in
Art and Design. Hence I wrote out the principle here in full as a way of
getting it into my brain, believing that writing such things out often aids
memory. It was an educational principle that was keen to make sure that
students perceived their studies within a broad perspective and to appreciate
disciplines other than their own, as well as avoiding narrow specialism.
