Alumni Art Show Thursday Aug 3rd 6pm to 8pm

A&D Alumni show

The High School of Art and Design
is pleased to bring together a collection of works spanning nearly five decades of lineage. Everyone in this exhibition is connected to the school’s rich 80+ year history of art making, rigor and experience.

The pieces in this show come from a diverse group of artists, who clearly have remained dedicated having left the temporary guidance offered at the school. Life post-high school can take many forms for a budding artist just leaving the nest, entering the world to become whatever life has in store. Others choose a more academic path, beginning fresh new careers in veterinary science, biomedicine, education or finance. Our graduates hold enormous potential, regardless of interest, talent or ambitions. They are not only great artists, but great thinkers… READ MORE

On behalf of the Art & Design Alumni Association, we are sorry to inform you of the passing of one of our alumni. Michael Cheverino, beloved HS of Art & Design teacher and alumnus of the Class of 1971.

Not only was Michael Cheverino a dedicated and caring teacher, he was also very involved with Art & Design’s Alumni Association. He was the organization’s Vice President from early 1992 through October 2008, when he became its President. He graciously offered his classroom for our meetings until we were able to secure a room of our own. Michael also encouraged his students to participate in our alumni events — often as hosts. It was a great way to inspire them to follow in our footsteps. I’ve known Michael, and worked with him, for a more than two decades. He was truly one of a kind and will be dearly missed. READ MORE

Alumni In The News

Help Support the Next Generation of Artists, Designers, Photographers and Architects… Become an A&DAA Member.

Max+Ginsburg+2013.smIf you are an A&D alumni or supporter of the arts, you know what it takes to succeed in the artistic fields. With money even tighter these days, it is not only difficult for students to get the supplies they need, but it has become increasingly difficult for them to further their education as well. The Art and Design Alumni Association is committed to supporting every A&D student by providing the best resources to help them succeed in the future. We need your help to support the students and school. You can help by: Donations – Your donations fund professional development workshops for A&D students and much needed art supplies for A&D classrooms. Scholarships – You can choose an existing A&DAA scholarship to donate too or start a new scholarship fund. Mentors and Speakers – Art and Design students need YOU! Nothing is more inspirational to a student than a mentor with experience in the arts. As former Art and Design students, we have all shared similar experiences and struggles as we tried to break into the field. The Art and Design Alumni Association would like to provide the current A&D students with invaluable opportunities such as internships, workshops, and lectures. Join us in our efforts to inspire, support, and encourage the next generation of artists. Click here to help. This page will bring you to our donation page. Thank You for your support.
