Eleven Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) Computer Arts students will present their work in “Keyframed.” Free and open to the public, the portfolio exhibit will be held Tuesday, Oct. 13 from 4 to 7 p.m. in Templin Hall on the Hampton campus. This is the sixth year for the exhibit. “The show is vital to students because they are presenting their work publicly for the first time,” said Cecilia Wheeler, Associate Professor of Art and Computer Arts Department Head at TNCC.

The show is part of ART 193: Studies in Art, an elective course that allows students to concentrate on developing a professional portfolio. “The portfolios are multimedia files so they include advanced motion graphics, using our new green screen studio and the industry-standard software we teach. In addition, the students created their own DVD with the DVD authoring software as well as other promotional materials, business cards and promo packets,” Wheeler said.
