Rockland Community College student Marven Laguerre has been recognized by Adobe as a semifinalist in several online competitions for his artwork created with the Photoshop and Illustrator graphic programs. Ten of his colorful pieces of art are currently on display in the student art gallery in RCC’s Student Union.
A graphic design major, Laguerre draws inspiration from music, technology and nature. His artistic talents soared after taking classes in the digital art tools that he would come to master, as well as other Art courses including Graphic Design.”I consider myself a born artist, but these were tools I didn’t know about until I took the classes,” said Laguerre, a Haitian native who immigrated to the U.S. six years ago.
“I was in love with these classes. I found that even if you learn something well, you still practice it. Every time I do it, I progress more.”
