Earlier this month, Belmont Hill hosted Washington, DC-based artist Charles Phillippe Jean Pierre, who engaged with students in both conversation and collaborative art projects.

He shared a wide and diverse variety of methods in both mark making and art. From small spray paint works to 100 foot murals, he has created pieces for Drake, Kanye, and President Obama. Over two days, more than 30 students worked alongside Pierre to create two 6 x 8 foot collage panels.
