Tracey and Brooke gave a talk and demonstration to 59 students at the La Mesa Middle School on Wednesday, Feb. 25th. We spoke about our business and the education and skills needed for a career in art. We brought samples of pictures for them to see some of the fun signs, banners, and inflatables we have created. Brooke also shared what a day in the life of a professional graphic artist is like.
The students in the audience had great questions and the best part was a hands-on demonstration they got to participate in. We brought sign material and digital prints to make a sign. Brooke gave them several choices from flowers and an amusement park ride to an airplane flying overhead for their image. We were not surprised to see that most of the boys chose the airplane! Each student walked away with new knowledge about a professional career in art and a sign of their own that they made.
