Students Enjoy Continuing Education's Graphics Camp



Text Size

Newtown Middle School art teacher Leigh Anne Coles oversaw this summer's Graphics Camp through Continuing Education at Newtown High School, which began July 5 and was scheduled through July 15.

The camp was offered for students in fifth to eighth grade. According to a description for the camp, it taught students the basics of Adobe Illustrator.

Ms Coles said on Wednesday, July 6, she thought offering the Graphics Camp over the summer was a good way to help students "get their toes wet," ahead of attending high school.

Rising eighth grade student Nancy Chung said the students were working on outlining a pattern for a dress, which helped them learn how to use an Adobe Illustrator tool.

Ava Schwartz, a rising eighth grade student, said her favorite project, so far during the week, was recreating App logos.

"I like the class because I have never been able to use software like this at home," said Eliza Roth, another rising eighth grade student in the camp.

Malcom Zimmerman, a rising sixth grade student, said he thought the camp was, "Great." Fellow rising sixth grade student Jackson Chiappetta agreed.

"I think it's really fun and it is great," said Jackson.
