The show provides a unique glimpse into the educational and an aesthetic philosophy advocated by the El Camino College Art Department and illustrates a diversity characteristic of the contemporary art world. Despite an occasional departure from tradition, 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 (serigraphy).

The exhibition includes wonderful examples of familiar photographic processes (black and white silver prints and color printing). The computer design classes produced video animation as well as photo-based laser printed graphic designs and illustrative pieces. Additionally, the show includes a cross section of traditional three dimensional techniques taught in the department - jewelry construction; bronze cast sculpture; plaster cast sculpture, resin sculpture; wheel thrown and slab-constructed clay vessels and hand-built objects as well as a variety of mixed media constructions. The Student Show may be characterized by an energy and vitality unique to emerging artists.
