Media Fair Finalist!

Alex G. began taking photography here at Venture in October of this school year and has already completed three semesters.  He carries a 92% average in those three classes.  He is currently in his second semester of the Advanced Photography class.  He is working diligently toward, not only completing the credit, of course, but hopefully attaining his Adobe Photoshop certification after completing the course.  Alex has produced many creative works during his time here at Venture.  He has shown an artistic as well as photogenic eye and is well deserving of the honor that he will be receiving for being a finalist in the district Media Fair for the “Flower Color” project .  Alex has also taken Advertising & Graphic Design A & B where he completed an "Animal Rights" flyer that was also a finalist in the district Media Fair.

Venture is overjoyed that one, such as Alex, can have the opportunity to rise to the top and be recognized for his talents.  Congratulations!
