INDUSTRY - After years of honing their craft as artists and filmmakers, a group of Nogales High School students finally revealed their creations in their very own showroom.

The 2011 senior art show, titled "Passion Unleased," debuted Saturday at the Puente Hills Mall, where 15 art and three film students in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program have nearly 200 pieces on display.

"They've grown so much," said James Ellison, the school's visual and performing arts teacher and student adviser. "I'm proud of every single one of them."

Required to receive college credit, the event allows students to experience what it's like to put on a real art show, including pricing their work, Ellison said.
