Winning Artwork

"It is a continuing pleasure to present the best work of our talented students in the AUK Art and Graphic Design Department. It's always good to honor students who excel, but the President's Exhibition is especially close to my heart, because the faculty chooses the best work from their classes to enter in the competition. Usually, the students don't know their work is being considered until they are notified that they have won. In addition, we sincerely appreciate the enthusiastic support we have received from our President, Dr. Nizar Hamzeh," expressed Assistant Professor Sharon Lawrence, Chair of the Art and Graphic Design Department.
