Work by CFCC Drawing Students Selected for a New Drawing Textbook

Here is what their instructor, Victoria Paige, had to say about this honor.

“My career as an art instructor at CFCC has been filled with amazing, talented, charitable, fun and loyal students! Some of their work was selected to illustrate a new drawing textbook. Recently, I received an advance copy from the publishers in New York (Norton – wonderful people to work with). Six drawings were chosen! How exciting for the students and CFCC!

Please join me in applauding these students! Bravo! Stephanie Tarascio, Katherine Christian, Christina Budres(TeeNer), Addison Jones and Alexander Hicks.”
