The artwork of SCAD foundation studies students was selected to be featured on the new covers of Strathmore 300 Series Fine Art Pads. Bridgette Blanton, Caitlin Geels, Chieh-Yu Lee, Xavier Robles de Medina and Rovan Yu artwork is displayed on more than 70 different Strathmore products. In addition, recent SCAD graduate Logan Childress is featured on Strathmore's new 300 Series Mixed Media pad.

Foundation studies professor John Rise led the group of SCAD students in the collaboration with Strathmore to create a variety of classic still life images representative of artwork created in foundation-level college art classes.

"The still life study is an essential and historical tradition for artists, making it the perfect subject to represent our 300 Series Fine Art Pads," said Strathmore Artist PapersTM marketing manager Sue List.  "And, it is likely that no artist is more familiar with still life art than a college art student. Each of the students exceeded our expectations in regards to responsiveness, professionalism and the quality of their submissions."

The new pad covers began shipping to fine art stores in May 2011. In addition to being featured on pad covers, the students' work will appear on Strathmore Artist Papers website and in variety of other marketing materials.
