Rebecca Chu is a dedicated student who has been at the West California Academy of Art and Design for over 10 years. Her journey began here at a young age, creating work that demonstrates refinement of skills and creativity.
The Academy has witnessed her growth and development throughout the year. Her development in the Academy has been crucial, in visualization and execution of form in her portfolio.
Her talent and instructor guidance helped her distinguish her in 2015 by creating a portfolio for art high school --The Los Angeles County School for the Arts High School (LACSHA). LACSHA is a public and tuition-free school, operated by the Los Angeles County Office of Education. It is a highly competitive school which specializes in the training of music, theatre, dance, visual arts, and film.
After her acceptance, she continued at West California Academy of Art and Design. This time Rebecca aimed for the Entertainment Design/ Animation track. Rebecca worked very hard and even took the time to TA for the Academy in the summer. Through her diverse portfolio work, her project were quality and refinement. She always displayed discipline and experimentation, and commitment.
“I definitely learned to work as a group and learn not just from teachers but also classmates. My future goal is to work in an animation studio and bring life into art.” Rebecca said.
Her use of color, style and a gestural mark has taken her to new avenues of growth and exploration of materials. In life drawing class, she has taken great leaps in trying different techniques and investigating line quality and mark making, while at the same time producing accurate figural studies. Students rely on her as an example. They know that the work that is turned in will set the bar for the classroom.
Her evolution is evident in her paintings, life drawing and digital skills. She is committed to make an impression professionally. She has showcased her work, volunteered in her school events, and won various competitions.
At the age of 16, Rebecca won Rigolleto Student Art Contest with a scholarship of $1,000. She was invited to the opening night performance of Rigoletto on May 12, 2018 and the Cast Supper that follows the show at the Opera House.
Rebecca Chu has been a stellar student and we expect great things for her bright future.
