Alumni Artist Alexa Pitt (Pratt Institute) Virtually Visits and Inspires Lawrence Art Students

On December 18th Mrs. Ganes's Advanced art classes (Advanced Open Studio and Advanced Placement Art) had a very special guest artist who virtually came to share her artwork. 

Alexa Pitt, (class of 2018) showed students selected art projects that she created while at Lawrence as well as her current art. Alexa Pitt is a junior in college, majoring in illustration major at Pratt Institute. Her artwork is outstanding and according to Mrs. Ganes, "Alexa is one of the most talented students whom I have taught in my 25 years at Lawrence High School!" 

Alexa was a well rounded student at LHS who excelled academically. It was a valuable learning experience for art students to hear her speak and to observe all of the artistic growth and development just 3 years out of high school. 

Students were inspired by her wonderful presentation.
