Making a Difference with Poster Design
Osterer, Irv
Arts & Activities, v149 n5 p30-31, 46 Jun 2011
This article describes an art project that gives students an opportunity to contribute to a very worthy cause. Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) encourages schools to participate in their annual fundraising campaign by submitting designs to their poster contest. Each year, this is assigned to the author's junior class art students. A panel of media professionals examines the artwork submitted each year, and chooses the signature image for the year's fund-raising campaign. Each design is required to include a teddy bear, which is part of CHEO's corporate image. People who live in the Ottawa-Carleton region recognize the outstanding work CHEO does for the community. In fact, many Merivale students have been to CHEO for treatment during their formative years and know firsthand how important the institution is to the city. This project is successful on a number of different levels. It is an appropriate vehicle to teach students about poster design. More importantly, it allows graphic design students--and the entire school--an opportunity to participate in what they all recognize is a very important community event.
