Spotlight on former SmArt School Student Elisabeth Alba
The very talented Elisabeth Alba worked with through last year in Rebecca Guay's mentorship class. She has been getting well deserved attention with her wonderful portfolio this year! Along with her SOI acceptance this fall, she was recently selected as one of the rising stars of 2012 by imagine FX magazine: http://beta.imaginefx.com/rising-stars-2012-winners-announced-65352 Currently she is working on several books for Scholastic and a very special project with Simon & Schuster with bestselling writer Cassandra Clare( City of Bones), that was the result of SAS mentorship assignment from last year! Rock on Elisabeth! We are so proud of you!
"I have studied and taught online art classes, and what Rebecca created with her mentorship is nothing short of revolutionary. She has an ability to not just teach what she knows, but to see into the essence of who you want to be as an artist and draw it out. No matter what style you work in, she can push you in the right direction. The evolution in my work through the mentorship was incredible and I look forward to more with SmArt School."
