While Duran and Kang spent their summer learning at CSSSA, junior Hunter Carroll-Crosby attended a UCLA summer art institute to improve his photography. The summer program is led by UCLA alumni, and the curriculum pushes students to explore and expand their creativity in order to enhance their craft.
As the UCLA summer program was ending, many students in the institute were asked to display their art. Carroll-Crosby stated, “On the final day of the program, we had a gallery where the three programs all got to hang up their work together in the New Wight Gallery at UCLA. I got to choose my layout for my photos and the size in which they were printed. The gallery was open for two hours, where family and friends were able to walk through and see all of the artwork from all of the students.”
