El Camino College Art Gallery is pleased to present works from the students of the El Camino College Art Department, Spring 2022. This is the first semester back on campus for many returning and new students. All of the artwork in this exhibition has been selected by the instructors of each of the studio classes, awarding outstanding students in each section, placement in this exhibition. Despite an occasional departure from tradition, the majority of the works in this exhibit are grounded in an academic approach to art study and training.
The annual Student Art Exhibition includes a variety of art works from a wide range of two-dimensional painting media (oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, watercolor on paper) as well as drawing media on paper (graphite, charcoal, ink, pastel and conte). Printmaking techniques include linoleum block, collography, etching and screen printing. The computer design classes produced video animation as well as photo-based laser printed graphic designs and illustrative pieces. Additionally, the exhibition includes a cross section of traditional three-dimensional techniques taught in the department – jewelry making; wheel thrown and slab-constructed clay vessels and hand-built objects as well as a variety of mixed media constructions. This Exhibition 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.
The Student Exhibition may be characterized by an energy and vitality unique to emerging artists. Please join us in celebrating the creativity, talent and tenacity of this particular group of artists.
