Josh Weeks

Angelina College Graphic Arts students will exhibit their work beginning Nov. 6 in the Angelina Center for the Arts gallery. A reception will be held from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.

Students from Lufkin who will exhibit works are Ra’Nese Canada, Terry Gould, Guillermo Gutierrez, Kylie Haggard, Abigail Hernandez, Tyler Law, Stacey Parry, Kaitlyn LePage, Karen Machain, Eliana Padilla, Holly Stephens and Gabriel Tovar.

Students from Nacogdoches participating in the show are Hector Castillo, Alisia Lozano, Joshua Norment, Lizeth Rodriguez and Desirea Spiecher.

Huntington students exhibiting works are Jennifer Banks, Brandin Brewster and Elora Flowers.

Other students exhibiting works are Hector Lopez of Diboll, Amber Weaver of Hemphill, Francisco Lopez of Carthage, Jacob Vinton of Zavalla, Joshua Weeks of Jasper, and Halle Washington of Dallas.

Libby Stapleton’s Editing and Layout classes will be showing booklet covers, résumés and business cards with logos, and sports story layouts that the students designed. Editing and Layout is the beginning design class for visual communications for both graphic arts and journalism students. The students begin by learning about the history of design, typography and the principles of design before they start applying those

concepts to their designs. The projects the students complete in class begin with very basic designs, like booklet covers, and end with complex multi-page designs, like a four-page newsletter.

Students from Jan Anderson-Paxson’s black and white, wet chemistry basic photography class will exhibit photos that demonstrate their knowledge of the creative controls of the camera, controlling depth of field, understanding directional lighting as well as paying particular attention to the photographic composition. They will also show a project that involved printing a cell phone image, where they combined new technology with traditional darkroom photography techniques.

Students in Anderson-Paxson’s Digital Publishing II class will show projects including original calendars, flyers for the Fine Arts Preview Day, and advertising campaigns for a company, service or product.

Reg Reynolds’ Digital Art I students worked on projects involving painting with light, 3-D imaging, and scanning and overlaying graphics.

Reynolds’ Digital Imaging II students worked with video, food photography, and fashion photography.

The Design and Applied Arts program prepares students for employment as entry-level graphic artists with the knowledge and skills necessary to perform desktop publishing, photography, computer layout, graphic arts, digital imaging, web design and video production.
