I begin this year with a bit of disappointment. It will be the first year since I took over the Graphic Design class, that it will not run. Not having this class is really a loss for not only the students who signed up for the class (granted, a small number), but also for the rest of the high school community. The Graphic Design class really had their hand in a lot of different projects going on around the building. Hopefully we can agressively promote the class and bring it back next year.
Anyway, everything else is rolling along. Our department goal this year is to attempt the NYSATA Olympics. This is a competition, where art students work on a year long project, and then present the project in upstate NY in the Spring. See the link below. As we put together a plan for how we will attempt this endeavor, announcements will be made to try and generate interest. Keep a look out.
