LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS PRESENT ART WORK AT LA ROCHE COLLEGE


1/29/2007

Pittsburgh, January 29 — La Roche College is proud to present SCHOLAR—Art 2007, the first exhibit of SCHOLAR students in art and design. The show will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily beginning Monday, Feb. 5, through Thursday, Feb. 15, in the Cantellops Gallery at La Roche. On Friday, Feb. 16, the show will be open from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A special awards ceremony for all student participants and their guests will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8.

The public is invited to attend this student art show, which features fine art and graphic design projects created by high school students who are part of the SCHOLAR program at La Roche. SCHOLAR is the concurrent enrollment partnership between La Roche College and several western Pennsylvania high schools. Since 1995, SCHOLAR has enabled qualified high school juniors and seniors to earn credits toward a college degree.

Because of La Roche’s outstanding reputation in the area of Graphic & Communication Design, one of the school’s most popular undergraduate majors, the program in graphics and fine art for SCHOLAR students was a natural fit, according to Sister Sally Witt, SCHOLAR program director.

“The students were excited to have the opportunity to showcase their talents, and our faculty is thrilled to be working with such fine young artists and graphic designers,” she said.

High schools participating in the SCHOLAR art and design program are: Baldwin, Beattie Tech, Central Catholic, Fox Chapel, North Allegheny, St. Joseph, Serra Catholic and Shaler.
