For the past eight years the Burlington High School Art Department has welcomed back former students to discuss their careers as artists. Alumni in college talk about their experiences at art school and share their portfolios, senior college students talk about how they are preparing to enter the workforce, and alumni who are working as designers, artists, and architects share their experiences and day-to-day activities at their jobs.
Current art students have a chance to see and ask questions of the alumni. They are able to learn about art careers directly from the artists to whom they relate as members of their extended school community.
In addition to connecting alumni with current students, Alumni Artist Day is an event that has connected alumni to one another to share resumes and job connections.
