[media-credit id=47 align=”alignright” width=”300″][/media-credit]The entire Carlmont Visual Arts Department is available through the Internet, on the department’s newly created website.
The website, created by ceramics teacher Tina Condos, compliments carlmontarts.com, the Art Program’s other website created by Animation teacher Joshua Sheridan, which focuses on Carlmont’s computer-based graphic arts programs.
“We wanted to change it up a little but, ensure we have a home for all of the fresh pictures of students work,” said Condos. “We wanted to have a place to display students work at all times, we have such amazing artwork we want to show off.”
Users can view students’ work from Carlmont’s visual art courses, as well as read up on information about the classes themselves. The descriptions list which classes qualify as a Career Technical Education course, one of which all students are required to take.
Users can also view flash videos, linked to Sheridan’s youtube channel, mrsheridan.
Junior Jordan Pon, who’s animation “A Turtle Story” is displayed on the website, said “[the website] gives people a better idea of what students are capable of.”
All students at Carlmont are required to take one Fine Art course course to receive a diploma. Many of these classes also qualify as CTE classes.
The Carlmont Art program has benefited in recent years, receiving a new building and equipment from various grants and sponsorships, such as the Carlmont Academic Foundation.
