Virtual College Visit
Winthrop 1 Winthrop2 Winthrop 3 Winthrop4
On February 10, 2017, several students participated in Hillcrest's first virtual college visit.  HHS Art instructor, Eva Esrum, reached out to her former student, Winthrop University Assistant Professor of Art, Seth Rouser, to form a collaboration through a Zoom video conference call.  One of the goals was to make a college visit possible and free for all of her students and anyone in the District who would like to join in. Winthrop University's Fine Arts Department prepared a quality presentation which included nine professors and a number of present and former Winthrop art students.  They spoke about departments within the visual arts and careers that pertain to them.  Seth served as host and tour guide as students were taken through studios, classrooms and the Winthrop Galleries.  The last part of the presentation included a former Winthrop student speaking about his new job working in the gallery and several current Foundations students speaking about their art on display.  Upon the conclusion of the presentation, HHS students in attendance agreed that the video conference call was interesting and helpful.
