'I love the freedom art gives me'

Our guest editor, artist Tracey Emin returned to her old school because it was from the art department there that she believes she got the spirit that made her an artist.

The school is King Ethelbert in Birchington just outside her home town of Margate in Kent, and since 2008 it has been a visual arts specialist school.

Tracey Emin met four current students, Ashleigh, Amy, Ollie and Bella in a cafe in Margate to find out the thoughts of young artists today.
