WRITTEN BY: intern extraordinaire

Welcome back to Week 7 of our 45 Days of Giving! See Days 31 – 35 below!  In the fall of 2018, Nossi College of Art is celebrating our 45th anniversary, and we decided to do 45 acts of creative kindness for local classrooms, non-profits, church groups. Nashville and the surrounding communities have been supportive of Nossi College and the impact we wanted to make on this area, so in return, we wanted to feature 45 acts of thankfulness. If you haven’t already, check out our previous blog for Week 6 to get all the action! Day 31: Ivanetta H. Davis Early Learning Center Ivanetta H. Davis Early Learning Center is a child- and family-centered public preschool. What’s unique about this preschool is the children’s growth and development are supported through the studies of the Creative Curriculum. Each day, students focus on literacy, math, social studies and science while also receiving social and emotional learning through experiences in the garden, the library and art classes. Teaching students through STEAM is very important for Nossi College and we were thrilled to stock their classroom with markers, crayons, crafting supplies and plenty of glue to hold it all together!

Davis Early Learning Center Ivanetta encourages families to visit and play often and to be engaged in their student’s life – both in and out of the classroom.

It started after making a connection through Dax Gomez, Nossi’s Career Service Director.  I shared my career goals with him, and I told him I saw myself as a photographer for retail brands, taking images that would be displayed in ads, on websites or even in print. My ultimate goal is to work for the major athletic retailer, Nike. Dax took this information and connected me with the senior photography manager at Journey’s – their headquarters is based here in Nashville! I began this experience as a photography intern in July 2015, and I’ve been a part of some great moments there.   I get to work in their photography studio capturing products delivered from merchandisers: shoes, shirts and accessories. I get to style the products so they look great for the images, part of my prep work that goes into the shoot. After prep, I capture the products I’ve styled and then upload to Journey’s system so other teams can view and load onto their websites. So, next time you visit Journeys.com looking for your next pair of shoes, you will know who is a part of the team creating the pictures you see! I also get to shoot for Journey’s catalog, which has a circulation in…
