Multifaceted designer and artist Shantell Martin joined us on September 23, for Museum Day Live! in the Arthur Ross Terrace and Garden. Martin demonstrated how she makes her striking drawings, and lead a hands-on workshop for all those who attended. Here are some highlights from that event.

The work of Shantell Martin is a meditation of lines—a language of characters, creatures, and messages that invites her viewers to share in her creative process. Her illustrations transform everything from walls and found objects to ceramics and sneakers into a visual narrative, and Martin’s textile work was on view in Making | Breaking: New Arrivals.
