Students whose plans to complete a degree at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh have been derailed by the school’s recently announced plans to close March 31 are invited to explore higher education possibilities at Delaware College of Art and Design. Last year, DCAD accepted art and design students affected by the closure of the Art Institute of Philadelphia. In 2017, students planning to attend Antonelli Institute in Springfield, Pa., were accepted by DCAD. Like the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, DCAD offers associate degree studies in animation, graphic design and photography. These programs and DCAD’s programs in fine arts and illustration prepare students for transfer into bachelor’s programs at four-year colleges and universities throughout the state, region and beyond.
Delaware College of Art and Design is holding a meet-and-greet for Philadelphia-area alumni! From 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, at Frankford Hall, which is located at 1210 Frankford Ave. in Philadelphia. Attendees will be able to network among themselves and chat with President Jean Dahlgren and Dean Katy Ro while sharing their post-DCAD updates and their thoughts on the future of DCAD. They also will be able to pick up some cool DCAD swag.
Two members of Delaware College of Art and Design’s administration have been selected to deliver presentations at a women’s conference in March. President Jean Dahlgren will be the lunchtime keynote speaker and trustee Sarah McBride will deliver the morning presentation during Our Time is Now: Women’s Leadership Summit 2019, presented by the Junior League of Wilmington. This fourth annual event is a comprehensive development opportunity for women from throughout the Delaware Valley and beyond who are seeking to elevate their leadership skills. Attendees will connect with like-minded individuals and focus on both professional and personal growth through a diverse program of talks, workshops and panel sessions.
