About this Grantee
Through a student-run apparel business, Ms. Ball and her partners help students develop skills in technology, marketing, commercial arts, and communication. Students study media practices and trends, recruit customers from the community, and create marketable products. To develop artistic skills, students engage in logo design, calligraphy, and photo layout and learn the silk screening process. Students expand their language skills by writing and editing text for advertising campaigns and creating presentations for prospective customers.
