– The Creative Collaborators
Here we meet Ryan S.H. (‘28) and Ashvin T. (‘30) from Middle School (MS) and Elementary School (ES), respectively, who collaborated to create a stunning piece of artwork called “ISKL” which they have donated to the school. The artwork took them about a month to finish and is currently on display at the ES corridors along with other artwork created by Ashvin, who is holding a solo art exhibition.
Here is their story:
