IVVC Receives Grant from Illinois Retired Teachers Association Foundation
Indian Valley Vocational Center (IVVC) has been awarded a grant by the Illinois Retired Teachers Association Foundation (IRTAF). The grant is one of several given to public school educators statewide through the IRTAF Excellence in Education Grants for Teachers Program.
The grant will be used to purchase a Canon macro lens. Students enrolled in the IVVC Graphic Design program will reach new levels of creativity using the lens to capture extremely close-up photos, focusing on the skills of depth of field and aperture. Graphic Design students learn the art of combining text with pictures in advertisements, magazines, or books, and students will use the lens to photograph unique images.
The high quality lens will increase the scope of student projects, help them to be successful, and allow students to learn on industry-standard equipment.
IVVC wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the Illinois Retired Teachers Association Foundation for their support!
