Ever wonder what Shattuck-St. Mary’s School faculty members do when they aren’t educating students? SSM community members gathered in the weCreate Studio on Wednesday, September 28 to find out, as Visual Arts Instructor Polly Isurin presented on some of her most recent creative work.
Ms. Isurin kicked off the event by discussing her well-traveled background and her focus on creating art that features an element of human interaction. From several paintings and drawings to her “Obelisk for the Future” permanent installation piece that she physically buried in the ground, Ms. Isurin shared some of her experiences, processes, and artworks with the group, as well as some of the unconventional forms of research that went into turning her concepts into reality.
She also shared macaroons, her favorite dessert, to the delight of the audience. Isurin’s presentation is the first in a planned series of weCreate events that showcase the interests, skills, and hobbies of SSM faculty and staff members.
