Graphics design students at C.S. Monroe Technology Center in Leesburg, Va., had the opportunity to show their painting, photography and digital work at an exhibit at the town hall. Locals were able to view student works at a gallery opening, and students had a chance to showcase their skills and talent.

The show began five years ago as a partnership between the school and the Leesburg Commission on Public Art. The show features work from first- and second-year students. Styles include paintings, collages and digital images created using Adobe software. Some represent class work, and others reflect works done outside of class.
