The Computer Arts+Design Program at Mercy College invites students to attend a Drawing Workshop hosted by Professor Josh Gaetjen.
The workshop provides students with an introduction to the basic principles and processes of observational drawing. Emphasis will be placed on establishing clear spatial and volumetric renderings of forms. Admission is free for this two-day workshop. Space is limited to 16 students on a first-come, first-served basis.
For more information or to register, contact Professor Josh Gaetjen at 914.674.3015 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about the Computer Arts + Design program, visit artdesign.mercy.edu.
Thank you to all of our Computer Graphics students for their entries!

This week, Art students from Clarkstown High School North have been collaborating with students from Bardonia Elementary and Valley Cottage Elementary around the topic of Robots.
North students guided their younger peers in thinking about the form and functions of robots. As students worked together they discussed details ranging from materials the robots would be made of to emotions they might emulate.
Preliminary drawings were made by the elementary school students.
Art teachers Nancy Diamond (CHSN), Jen Bini (Bardonia Elementary) and Frank Millilo (Valley Cottage Elementary) will continue to work behind the scenes to assist students through the next phases of this collaboration.
During the next phase of the project the high school students will use the drawings from their elementary school partner to create their interpretation of the robot.
In March the students will collaborate again, this time via Google Hangouts and Google Classroom, to discuss how the interpretations by the high school students are going.
Highlights from this project will be on view at the CCSD Technology Showcase on Thursday, March 2.
The final phase of this project will be an exhibit of works from both the elementary and high school students at the Chestnut Grove Offices this summer.
Special thanks to CHSN senior Stephen Campanella for his enthusiasm and drive in pursuing this project!
