Visiting Artist

We were thrilled to host Visual Artist Ian Murphy for a three-day series of workshops!

Ian Murphy is a renowned Fine Artist whose studio practice involves a multitude of mixed media, drawing, and painting techniques. He is best known for his powerful, tonal drawings and atmospheric, mixed-media oil paintings of architectural sites.


Our High School and Middle School Art students had the opportunity to learn first-hand how layered surfaces can have a strong influence on working methods. The three-day session included a talk about Ian's practice as he showed a portfolio of his work, live demonstrations, a hands-on workshop for students in drawing, painting, and mixed media, and tutorials with each student about their own practice.

This is one of the many ways our teachers create innovative opportunities for our students to aspire; to pursue their passions, imagine possibilities, and make them real.
