This exhibition gives our hardworking educators and support staff a chance to share their skills and insights into their artistic practice with the Cabrillo students they mentor and the community at large, providing examples of creative adaptations to the ever-changing circumstances of life. More than thirty artists will participate in this dynamic exhibition, presenting work spanning multiple media and disciplines, including ceramics, digital fabrication, drawing, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, video and more.
