Last Saturday our family attended the 2014 student art showcase at the California State University, Los Angeles. Our daughter Natalie has been taking art classes over there, as part of the Gifted/Talented Program that she is part of.
Sponsored by LAUSD, his program is a wonderful opportunity for children in the public school system to be consistently exposed to art .
I religiously take my camera to these events because there is always something surprising in them.
Imagine my excitement when I enter one of the classrooms and see these amazing cardboard portraits. I was literally blown away.
These artworks were created by a group of 12th graders under the brilliant guidance of their teacher Sergio Raygoza.
I want to thank Sergio Raygoza and his students for sharing this remarkable work with us.
I hope that this project inspires other art teachers out there as well as you, my fellow paper lover, to keep exploring the endless expressive possibilities of paper.
These self portraits are so wonderful and creative! Kudos to the teacher and the artists.
This is just amazing! Must pin it!
Nice and super cool Sergio, A+ work!!
