e-Connections Post

Young artists from George Washington Carver School of Arts and Science were honored Tuesday by the California Lottery, which will display Carver student work in its headquarters north of downtown.

Lottery Director Paula LaBrie awarded the artists with certificates of appreciation. Advanced Placement (AP) Art students submitted pencil drawings and pen and ink drawings. Additionally, the display includes pin-hole cameras made from paint cans.  Displayed are architectural photos from around the campus.

LaBrie acknowledged the innovative quality of the pin-hole camera photographs — the ingenuity, creativity and artistic aesthetic of the work.  She said the display embodies the theme of the CA Art Gallery: “Imagination in Education.”
