Posters will be on display in Doric Hall from Jan. 13-17, with an artist’s reception on Thursday, Jan. 16 at 10am.
As part of an on-going program in the town of Sharon, MA to create awareness about water conservation, Sharon High School graphic design students were presented with information on the topic of water conservation, followed by a challenge to create informational posters for the public. Students researched water conservation issues, chose their own headlines, and designed their posters (and original artwork) in the Art Nouveau style, using Adobe Illustrator.
The water conservation poster project was a collaborative effort between the Neponset River Watershed Association’s Water Conservation Coordinator, Nancy Fyler, and Sharon High School’s media arts teacher, Janine Roberto, and was funded by the Sharon Water Department and Sharon High School’s F.A.M.E. Program.
