Student Artwork

We are incredibly proud of the work our students do. As we have a great reverence for tradition, many of the pictures that appear on this website are copies of historic and professional artists' works. For centuries, students have learned the foundations of art by studying and reproducing the great works of the past. All copies are made solely for educational purposes.
