The annual Fine Arts Faculty exhibition includes a variety of works of art in a wide range of media. The exhibit provides a look at the aesthetic and educational philosophies advocated by El Camino College Art Department. It demonstrates an array of concepts and techniques currently characteristic of the art world. The majority of the works in the show are grounded in an academic approach to art study and training. Represented in the exhibition are oil, watercolor and acrylic paintings on canvas, paper or panel.
