Each year El Camino College Art Gallery is proud to present a showcase of the current
student body’s output. All of the works in this exhibition are selected by instructors
in the art department as some of the best examples of student work presently being
produced at the college. The Student Show includes a variety of art works fabricated
in a wide range of media. The exhibit provides a unique glimpse into the educational
and aesthetic philosophy advocated by El Camino College Art Department and illustrates
a diversity characteristic of the contemporary art world.
The majority of the works in the gallery are grounded in an academic approach to art
study and training. Represented in the exhibition are traditional two-dimensional
painting media (oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, watercolor on paper) as well as
drawing media on paper ((graphite, charcoal, pastel and Conte). Printmaking techniques
include lithography, etching and silk-screen printing in addition to digital printing
The digital media program produces video animation as well as photo based digitally
printed graphic designs and illustrative pieces.
Additionally, the show includes a cross section of three-dimensional techniques taught
in the art department-jewelry construction; plaster, clay, latex and bronze cast sculpture;
wheel thrown and slab-constructed clay vessels and hand-built objects as well as a
variety of imaginative mixed media constructions and small-scale installation pieces.
An energy and vitality unique to emerging artists characterizes the annual Student
