Me No Longer Talk Pretty Some Day

James Victore galvanized students in the AIGA/NY AIGA/NY Mentoring Program to create posters using the theme "I Have a Voice." Decrying "Pretty Pictures," (guilty?), Victore urged kids and everyone to test and push themselves. Arielle Jennings, my excellent student who's a Junior at the High School of Art & Design, holds her poster about racial discrimination. Arielle is a diligent high-achieving student, was not upset by James's occasional expletives; her takeaway was to follow your passions and be true to yourself—and, of course, to sign your work.
