The Art 2 and Art 3 classes of Mrs. Nogay and Mrs. Flora collaborated in a joint effort to combine traditional methods of painting and computer-aided graphic design to showcase student talent at the highest level. Take a look at Penn DOT's #PaintThePlow project!
With this project students learned vital team working skills to brainstorm and design the plow. Virtually every scholastic discipline was utilized within the process - from precise measuring, to the science of chemistry in which type of paint will hold up to Pennsylvania winters, to the engineering properties of the plow and the methods that would work best to paint on the material.
The Art department's use of the S.T.E.A.M. Program utilizing the Fab Lab to cut vinyl stickers designed by students in the classroom and the process of application brought relevance to jobs in design that can be combined with traditional Fine Arts.
Congratulations on a job well done!
