Palm Springs, April 5, 2016G-Star School of the Arts ( – G-Star student Eli Dreyfuss has already set records winning an unprecedented seven Gold Key Awards in the National Scholastics Arts & Writing Competition for his still photography.  Dreyfuss has been photographing his fellow students as his main subjects and now, is off to Carnegie Hall Thursday, June 2nd for the National Scholastics’.

“Eli Dreyfuss is an exceptional student,” says G-Star Principal Kim Collins.  “He is a kind-hearted, intuitive young man; and I believe he brings that perspective to his photography.  He seems to capture the emotional essence of each of his subjects,” Collins added.

In February he won the National Scholastics Gold Key First Place Award over 15,000 students in the USA Southeast Regionals.  This was the second year in a row he finished first in the Regionals competing against 15,000 students and their work last year.  His Gold Key Awards took him to the international competition where he competed against 320,000 students from all over the world; this time taking First Place winning the Gold Medal.

“To think that our students, now including Eli, have appeared at Carnegie Hall three times and two years in a row, is quite a student, school and faculty accomplishment,” stated Greg Hauptner, Founder & CEO of G-Star School of the Arts.  

Eli can be seen in the hallways of G-Star carrying his coffee table book of his art work that is selling for $150.  His success carries on as he never forgets his friends, and gratitude for his school, and provides free headshots to any student at G-Star.   Eli Dreyfuss works can be viewed at:
