This work by Olivia Hernandez a teacher at Sylmar High School.

This work by Joshua Ruhel is a teacher at Sylmar High School.

The public is invited to attend the reception of "What Those Who Teach Can Do" at the AI gallery at 5250 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, on Thursday, April 19, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The Art Institute of California – Hollywood, (located in North Hollywood) is celebrating the talents of local high school arts and media educators with an April gallery show, "What Those Who Teach Can Do."

"We're honoring what educators in our community do by hosting their work in our gallery," said AJ Antun, president of The Art Institute of California - Hollywood.

This exhibit brings an opportunity for the public and students to see their teacher's work, perhaps breaking the incorrect notion that "those who can't, teach." Art teachers do create their own work as well as give instruction to their students.

For this exhibit teachers submitted their artwork that included painting, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, video, design, digital media, film, photography, illustration, fiber, and fiber arts.

The teachers from the following schools were selected to have their work on display: James Bentley, Burbank High School; Terry Arena Donaldson, Adolfo Camarillo High School, Tim Ellis, Village Christian High School; Olivia Hernandez, Sylmar High School; John Kovac, El Monte High School; Joshua Rohal, Sylmar High School; Nathaniel Ray Vasquez, Narbonne High School.

"Teachers work tirelessly to cultivate the skills of our area's high school students. The show is our way to shine a light on the talents they use every day to inspire," Antun said.

"Art empowers me," said Hernandez, a teacher in the exhibit from Sylmar High. "When I teach art, I want to convey the creative process, which in turn can empower students to see the creative process through to a beautiful product." Hernandez has two oil on canvas art pieces in the exhibit titled the "The Ancient Ones" and "Kagel Canyon Road."

Bentley, who teaches art at Burbank High, points out that art is a way of life.

"I live a lifestyle that embraces creativity at work and in my free time," he said. " I encourage my students to be honest about their work and accept that not everything we do is what we expect and it is this pursuit of the masterpiece that improves the lives of students and enriches those who we touch." His work in the show "Les Liberatures" is created with ink on printmaking paper and " Anatomy of a Motorcycle" uses enamel on steel.

Sylmar High teacher Gary Paul Bolita said, "Art influences how I teach by revitalizing my creativity and helping to make sense of just the ordinary. Without Art, I'd be nothing, no creativity, no fun."

Bolita is exhibiting a pen and paper art piece titled, "You're Being Watched."

Joshua Rohal, another teacher at Sylmar High, is exhibiting his work "Diebenkorn Sea Wall," using the media, acrylic on canvas and "Living Earth" created using acrylic on board.

Rohal understands that the art class provides a freedom for his students who like art, are unique.

"The history of art demonstrates to us the diversity of human creativity. There is not only one way to express ourselves," Rohal said. "As an art teacher,I realize that each student learns differently, expresses themselves in their own way, and each one is capable of greatness."

The month-long exhibition marks the first nationwide effort by The Art Institutes to highlight the artistic works of local teachers and there are having similar exhibits at the school's 45 locations throughout the United States. For more information go to: www.artinstitutes.edu

Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
