Students throughout the Coast Community College District are getting connected through the art of their teachers.
An art exhibit featuring work by faculty members from throughout the college district is currently showing at the Coastline Art Gallery in Huntington Beach.
"Collective Knowledge" encompasses some of the wisdom the art teachers from the three colleges — Orange Coast, Golden West and Coastline — have to offer to students and the community at large, said Shea Mayberry, curator of the Coastline Art Gallery.
"I think probably the main thing is to give students a chance to see the work of their teachers and to see them as professionals, practicing artists and not only teachers in the classroom," she said. "I think it's good for students to see. Sometimes, the path to 'success' is not clear. There are so many options for you, and it's good to see that the teachers have gone on a professional level."
