Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) 2011 Commercial Art/ Hatboro-Horsham High School graduate, Nick Raimondi, is currently completing his Associate Degree in General Fine Arts at Montgomery County Community College (MCCC). After completing his program at MCCC, he plans to pursue his Bachelor’s degree in Art Education with a minor in Photography at Temple University.
He is currently teaching photography for EASTERN’s Summer Fun program for the third consecutive year.
He works part time at Gap, and does freelance wedding photography and portraits.
Raimondi has always had an interest in art and photography. His artistic outlets of choice are photography and graphic design. He chose to attend the Commercial Art program at EASTERN for his junior and senior years of high school after attending an EASTERN presentation held at Hatboro-Horsham High School when he was in tenth grade.
He heard from some students enrolled in the Commercial Art program that EASTERN is a good way to get into prestigious art programs in college, and to develop a professional portfolio.
“If you have an interest in any aspect of art, EASTERN’s Commercial Art program is a good way to prepare yourself for college and the real world. The Commercial Art instructors, Mrs. Mohrey and Mr. Steinbacher, treat their students as if they were in the industry,” said Raimondi. “I learned a great deal
from my instructors and I truly enjoy coming back to EASTERN as a teacher for the Summer Fun program.”
EASTERN’s Commercial Art program covers everything from conceptual drawing and design to a professional portfolio. Students learn the value and application of their unique styles in both design and illustration. Students use industry-standard software on the Macintosh platform.
Software includes QuarkXpress, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Flash.
Raimondi plans to pursue a career in fashion photography after he receives his degree from Temple University.
