VADA Art Exhibition is Creativity at its Finest
After two years of intense study and creative growth, students graduating this spring from Broward College’s Art and Design Department will exhibit their best pieces during the upcoming show, Level Up, from April 26-28 at Central Campus. Sixteen students will display the best of their drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, and graphic design projects during the three-day show.
The student-chosen theme for the show, Level Up, embodies the essence of the moment for these promising young artists. The exhibition is the culmination of the Portfolio Preparation and Exhibition course, which is designed to help students prepare for the next level in their artistic education: moving on to an institution that will grant a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree, or careers as professional artists and designers.
The exhibition will include a closing reception on Thursday, April 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Fine Arts Building (6), located on the southwest corner of the campus, diagonally across from the parking garage. The reception is free to the community and to students. For more information about Level Up, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stop by and wish your fellow graduates well as they continue to pursue their art!
This is the second year Visual Art and Design Academy (VA&DA) at Broward College has offered graduating students with their portfolios for transfer to upper-level school to complete a BFA degree. Each year only 15 students are chosen to study in the VA&DA program, and the competition for seats in this top-notch, exclusive visual arts program is stiff.
Graduates of VA&DA have been accepted to prestigious arts programs such as the California Institute of Arts (formerly the Disney School), Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida and the school of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Students from this year’s graduating class have been accepted to the Art Academy University in San Francisco, SAIC, the Kansas City Art Institute and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
