Middle and Upper School Arts News & Stories
British visual artist Shantell Martin, best known for her stream-of-consciousness drawings and light projections, recently spent a day with Riverdale's Upper School art students. Shantell shared her story with several art classes, producing one of her signature black-and-white line drawings in each class. She also joined the Projects in Contemporary Art (PICA) students in creating an installation on the PICA wall in the lobby of the John R. Johnson Student Center.
Shantell encouraged students to do what they love and continue to break the rules (at least when it comes to their artwork). By sharing her story she hopes to inspire other creative spirits to follow their dreams.
