Before the start of the spring semester, the faculty and staff of the Brookhaven College School of the Arts spent a day teaching high school. On January 10th, 110 students from Creekview, Newman Smith and Ranchview high schools were given the opportunity to take part in one-day workshops at Brookhaven College. Each of the workshops focused on a different art medium: mold-making sculpture (taught by Nick Hutchings); digital media (taught by David Newman); printmaking (taught by Don Taylor); and drawing (taught by Marla Ziegler).
The Brookhaven College Police Department took a few minutes to celebrate the team’s accomplishments at its annual awards ceremony on January 11th. Police Captain John Klingensmith stated that the event, instituted a few years ago, has helped build morale within the group. Certificates of accomplishment are given to officers who have shown improvement in particular areas. The officers also vote amongst themselves to select an Officer of the Year. This year, Officer Jimmy Snyder was chosen by his peers. Officer Jason Brown was also honored with a Meritorious Service Award for his handling of a specific police incident at the college.
Brookhaven College Art Professor Don Taylor and Gallery Director David Newman team-taught a winter printmaking workshop class with visiting artist Michael Barnes, professor of art at Northern Illinois University. The winter term printmaking workshops, inaugurated six years ago, feature visiting artists of national distinction. Winter workshops supplement the summer workshops that the Brookhaven College Art Department has offered since 1982. The workshop series provides an invaluable opportunity for students to work with artists of national stature and, as the majority of the visiting artists are faculty members at four-year institutions, also facilitates transfer for the students.
