For Release through March 24
DALLAS • Some local high school students are getting their first opportunity to show their artwork in the Atrium Gallery at Brookhaven College. A show featuring the works of visual communications students from Irving, Dallas, Lewisville and Duncanville will be in place March 2-24.
The show highlights the talents and growing skills of these local high school students with poster and ad designs, self-portraits and illustrations. Dual credit students at Townview Magnet School and Tech-Prep programs at Skyline Career Development Center, Irving Academy and Dale Jackson Career Center contributed works for the exhibit. Dual credit students earn both high school and college credit for their enrolled courses. Tech-Prep, a state-sponsored program, allows students in approved high school programs to earn college credit upon enrollment in a partnering community college.
“Both the college and the students benefit from these partnerships,” said Jerry Hill, lead professor in the Visual Communications Program. “Dual credit and Tech-Prep programs let high school students gain college credit and learn at a college level as they develop career skills, while the college is able to build a pool of potential students for the future.”
The exhibit is free and open to the public. The Atrium Gallery is located in the Building B lobby and is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
