            The students’ commercial photography teacher Dawn Lisko states, “This show represents the culmination of a four-year long journey upon which these gifted young artists embarked. From their freshman year, they learned and explored the elements and principles of compositional design. They then explored everything from spending hours in the darkroom to experimenting with alternative process techniques to exciting Photoshop tools and techniques to master manipulation.  They eventually developed their own distinctive style evident in this show. They also have grown as a group that looks to each other for inspiration and constructive criticism. ” She adds, “These images are sure to please and leave you filled with inspiration and appreciation.” 

            According to their website, “Canvas Studio Art provides knowledgeable and caring instruction in their Canvas Classes, unique opportunities to explore and gain deeper understanding of new media and processes in Workshops to explore your personal artistic direction. Canvas Camps provide a fun and enriching opportunity for young artists to build basic art and design skill while exploring a variety of media.”
