Kippen, who is also the Director of the Tunbridge School of Art, met the models at Monarch Hill in Tunbridge, home of two young outstanding art students, Miles and Rowan, as well as a prolific flock of chickens. Although the young artists themselves were not able to attend Prof. Kippen’s drawing class at Norwich University’s School of Architecture and Art, a representative duo of chickens brought a bit of Monarch Hill’s creative energy.
