Poly’s Visual Arts Program: Fostering a Culture of Creativity and Innovation

Introducing Poly’s Upper School student Hannah K. ’23! She is an AP Art student whose concentration is the study and manipulation of time as a social construct. Her work has been nurtured through Poly’s visual arts program, and she looks forward to developing her skills this coming year.

Q: What is your biggest inspiration for your art and for these pieces specifically?

A: My greatest inspiration as an artist is my parents. I live in a family-centered home around art which my family believes brings people together to form a connection. I’ve always believed this to be true, and it has inspired me a lot. For the pieces photographed, my inspirations were portraits by Picasso and abstract art by Cy Twombly.

Q: What are your favorite aspects of the Poly art program?

A: My favorite aspect of the Poly art program has been the wide variety of artistic opportunities that Poly offers. I have really enjoyed getting to experiment with all of the art mediums offered. Additionally, I really appreciate the small class sizes and opportunity for individual work with the teacher in the Upper School visual arts program. I have found this to be very helpful, and it certainly has allowed me to foster my talents as an artist.
