CARMEL VALLEY — Seniors from Canyon Crest Academy High School plan to hold their “Senior Art Showcase,” from 6 to 9 p.m. March 6 at the Artist Space at Southfair Gallery, 2010 Jimmy Durante Blvd. This allows the seniors an opportunity to display their best works to the public. The seniors are members of the school’s Envision Digital/Fine Arts Conservatory, a pre-professional artist-training program. Most of the students have been in the program for the past three years. The show will be a culmination of the work they have accomplished.
The showcase will open with a public reception. Each student will be exhibiting his or her work inside an individual section of outdoor space at The Artist Space at Southfair Gallery. The displayed art will include projects guided by local teaching artists in addition to independently motivated work.
Many students have art for sale, in order to raise funds for the Conservatory program. Sixty percent of the proceeds from these art sales will help pay for the art supplies and teaching artists used in the Conservatory program.
The show will remain up through the month of March. Envision Digital/Fine Arts courses provide students with a strong foundation in art history as well as the elements and principles of art. The program aims to graduate artists with a broad range of artistic skills and understanding as well as the ability to collaborate within a group.
