Visual Arts

On Thursday May 9th our senior Visual Arts classes were visited by three Ridgemont grads with a design workshop straight from the Industrial Design program at Carleton University. Zach Adref (fresh graduate of Carleton U - congratulations!), Omar Fakuri (fourth year), and Tawab America (first year) shared their experiences in the program as well as some helpful drawing exercises and demos. Students benefited from hearing about their experiences and learning from their work. Thanks to Zach, Omar, and Tawab for giving back!
