Graphic Communications & Printing Facility Opens at Venice High
Super Shop 9 has recently opened its state-of-the-art, high-tech Graphic Communications & Printing Facility in Venice High School. And this weekend to promote the opening, Super Shop 9 will hold an open house at the facility. Principal, Dr. Elsa Mendoza and instructor, Art Lindauer has invited the entire Westside community to visit the facility. Though the entire community is invited, special invitations are rolled out to invitees including former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The three year curriculum offered at the facility includes graphic design, as well as on sheet-fed offset, digital and screen printing. During the first year, students get an introduction to the printing industry and get instructions in safety, job preparation, tool, and machine usage. More advanced programs are in store for the second and third year students who are also given the opportunity to enter student competitions and apply for college scholarships.
