It's always a pleasure to present the work of the Academy's students, especially when the presentation comes from someone like Joshua Pina. Joshua's art has been showcased here before on May 4 in a post entitled "Two more from the Teens". This drawing was created last Saturday during the Teen Program.
What distinguishes Joshua's sketch, aside from its quality, is that he is only 14 years of age. Joshua started with us when he was 11. Now that he's entering high school, his educational experience at the Academy combined with his current skill level has his school's administrators considering him for special placement in their arts program. If he's doing work like this at 14, imagine what we have to look forward to by the time he graduates and is ready for college. Joshua is a talent to watch.
