    One Academy student was recognized for his work in the videography category and three were recognized for their art in the photography division. The Long Island Media Arts Show provides a forum for high school students across the region to showcase their graphic arts, photography, and videography in an environment where they receive evaluations from experienced judges who work in these fields. Students receive feedback from industry professionals and view the work of their peers from across Long Island. The show has been produced by the Eastern Suffolk BOCES Arts-in-Education Department, a program that integrates the arts into K-12 curriculum to enhance learning, for the past 28 years.

  • Alumni Gives Back to Art Design Students

    Posted by Rob Van Brunt on 9/9/2016

    On September 9, 2016 the Art, Design and Visual Communication class here at BTC had a surprise guest speaker. Kiersten Miller, from Shoreham-Wading River and ADVC graduate alumni, popped in and discussed life as a college student and how her experience here at BTC has helped her easily adjust to college life. Kiersten also brought in some of her freelance professional graphic design work and gave the students some tips on networking. Kiersten said "One of the most important things you need to learn is how to communicate and not be afraid to talk to people you don't know...these networking skills lead me to several graphic design jobs."
