A big congratulations to the Class of 2014!
Visual Arts Night is quickly approaching! This year we will be partnering with the Arts Collaborative of Wakefield to host two shows at the Americal Civic Center on Wednesday June 11 from 6-8 pm. We are excited to display the awesome work our students have created this year and to have high school students demonstrating techniques in graphic design, illustration, television production, photography and ceramics. We hope to see you there!
Street art is any form of stencil, poster art and/or street installation that is put up outside of a typical venue. Graphic Design students took a blank wall and had to transform it into a wall that had been covered with graffiti. They used their Photoshop knowledge so far this year to create really convincing scenes. Check out the before and after images below!
We are thrilled to announce that Scott Barbaro, a student in the TV 4 class recently won a music video contest hosted by the band Silhouette Rising. The band, known for their eclectic DIY music videos decided to host a contest for their latest single “Going Gone” featuring Howi Spangler from the band Ballyhoo!
From their website
“We would like to thank all the participants for the “Going, Gone!” video contest and would like to congratulate Scott Barbaro for his winning entry.
Here’s a quote from Ballyhoo’s lead singer Howi Spangler about the video. “I like this treatment. I wasn’t expecting a revolutionary war theme. I think it adds to the concept of the song. It’s well shot, and color graded. Nice job editing as well. You can tell they put some hard work into it.”
