NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Montgomery Bell Academy's art classes are more than just drawing. The school, best known for it's academics and athletics, but in recent years, it's worked to make Art, a focal point.

Last year, they brought in artist Blek LeRat from Paris, to work with the students and this year, stencilist Logan Hicks was in residence, to speak with and inspire the school's young men.

He spoke of having to secretly work at night, stenciling his art work to New York walls, hoping not to get arrested.

However, he soon found himself and his art in high demand, from the Miami Dolphins Hard Rock Center to a building in Marrakech, Morocco.

The students were duly impressed, with several of them, excited to enhance their own art work, with the Logan Hicks stenciling style.
