Media included are varied, which makes for an excellent overview of what the talented high school students have been creating this year. The art faculty of these institutions is to be congratulated for their dedication and expertise from which many of their students learn not only the basic art techniques, but the highly technical media as well. The viewer will find ceramics, drawing, 3 D sculpture, glass, and photopolymer photgrauverue, digital and alternative processes in photography, black and white photos, charcoal, oils, mixed media, acrylics, and watercolors.
