Spotlight on JCC Fine Art Student

Happy Thursday!

The Frank Creech Art Gallery would like to introduce you to Sam Walter. Sam is currently a JCC Middle College student and JCC Fine Art student who has started working towards his senior project. The great news is that Sam has focused his attention on raising funds for the JCC Fine Art department and the Frank Creech Art Gallery. Sam came to us with this idea and sincerity to give back. Sam’s idea is to have a weekly raffle for artwork that he has gathered from students and local talent. These tickets are $1.00 a piece and the drawing will be each Friday from January until late April. Sam is using social media and word of mouth to get the message out to the community! We are very humbled by his commitment and willingness to make a difference!

If you would like to purchase a ticket, you can contact us here or feel free to stop by the art department and see Mr. Gregory. You can find Sam’s raffle page on Facebook at Sam’s JCC Benefit Raffle.

Our current raffle artwork is a silkscreened poster by Dantanamo Designs. Paul is a past JCC student who is currently printing handmade work for the music industry.

We hope you can support Sam and his efforts!

Past JCC Graphic Design Student Still Learning

On Feburary 19 & 20, 2011, Fine Art and Graphic Design Instructor William Gregory, traveled to Winston Salem with a past GRD student to learn about the new screenprinting equipment the art department has acquired. This was a two day workshop that was both instructional and fun! By purchasing this equipment, the department has added a new skill set that students can use to find employment or start their own business. This workshop showed us just how to do that!
