Los Gatos High School Advanced Art artwork on exhibit includes a small selection of oil paintings painted by the
advanced art students studying with LGHS Art Department teacher, Mr. Thad Smith. Several of the students are showing their first ever oil paintings,

art with members of the general public, as well as to see their art showcased outside of the classroom.

award-winning artwork to be represented in collections
worldwide and to be been shown in galleries in California, Arizona and
