The students in CPAVTS’s Advertising Art and Design program are capable of some amazing things—from winning first place in Graphic Design the past two years at the High School Computer Fair, to winning first place in the Students for Strides t-shirt design contest several years in a row (and counting!), and producing designs for a variety of clients. Recently, Kayla (a student from East Pennsboro) added to this growing list of achievements by gaining acceptance into the Pre-College Art and Design Residency Program at the Maryland Institute College of Art!

Kayla’s impressive portfolio (she is posing with some of her pieces at left) earned her a spot in a 2-week program focused on figure drawing—and her initiative also resulted in a scholarship covering part of the cost for the program.

“I was thinking about attending MICA already, so it will be a good experience to see what dorms are like, how the commute is, and what life on campus is like in general,” said Kayla.

CPAVTS would like to congratulate Kayla on her achievement, and on the hard work and dedication to her studies that led her there!
