Juan Mills Art Reception

Meeting Room 115
Friday, Jan 24, 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Please join us as we celebrate new artwork by Juan Mills. Juan donated his time and talent to paint - live in the library! - five canvasses for Goodman South's refurbished teen space. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.

Artist statement:
"My name is Juan Mills and I am a 15 year old sophomore at West High School. I became passionate about art when I was 9 years old and began working with art teacher Shane Quella at Walbridge School. I love to draw faces and very detailed design using paint markers, pens, spray paint and acrylics. My high energy and fast-pace work means I create art quickly. I have dyslexia and learning disabilities which make reading and writing difficult. But it also helps me be creative and artistic. My inspiration comes from the art of Shane Quella, Stefan Matioc, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Pablo Picasso. Despite my struggles, I always dream big!"
