Illustration and Graphic Design students who are Kappa Pi Eta Tau members will get their original artwork photographed. Getting work photographed allows artists to show off original artwork digitally. Scanning large documents can get expensive, so Kappa Pi photographers have donated their time to help out their design and illustration counterparts. We will be sure to share artwork online once the photography is complete!
Kappa Pi reinstated the Eta Tau Chapter at Nossi College of Art a few short years ago thanks to the help or current student at the time (and now Nossi graduate) Nicole Drake. Since relaunching the group, we have brought chapters together from across middle Tennessee, we have boosted membership at Nossi College, we have gotten involved with community organizations like Hands On Nashville and now two of our members received honorable mention scholarships from this International organization. Congratulations to Brandi Leath and Cory Harkins! Brandi Leath recently graduated with her degree in Interactive Graphic Design and is currently working for Parachute Media in East Nashville. Cory is a current student studying Illustration and already landed a big job with Toy Box Productions as Marketing and Lead Illustrator. “The scholarship committee had a difficult time selecting the scholarship winners from the outstanding applications that were submitted,” said Michael Stanley, Kappa Pi President, “Take special pride in this achievement for your outstanding portfolio.” Kappa Pi wants to encourage all artists to continue your creative exploration and keep putting new artwork out into the world! The below artwork is the reason Brandi and Cory were recognized. Congratulations to you both.

Nossi College of Art had 51 students make the honor roll for President and Dean’s List in the spring 2016 semester. Making these prestigious lists is not an easy task, as one must maintain a 3.67-3.99 GPA to earn a space on Dean’s List while President Scholars maintain a 4.0 GPA. In addition to maintaining high academics, our honor students are made up of Alpha Beta Kappa National Honor Society members, Kappa Pi Eta Tau members, CMA EDU members, Nossi Ambassadors and student leaders. Nossi College of Art encourages a commitment to Nashville community by getting students involved in non-profit, sporting, music, fashion and other entertainment activities throughout Middle Tennessee.
