A local business recently partnered with the Portland Arts and Technology High School (PATHS) to help students learn how to make a career out of creating art for commercial purposes.

The PATHS Commercial Art class partnered with Pat’s Meat Market and Café, located on Stevens Avenue in Portland, in a poster competition, said PATHS Commercial Art instructor Diane Manzi.

“All our Commercial Art students submitted work and the customers that came in to Pat’s voted on which ones they liked the best,” Manzi said. “There were over 30 posters to choose from.”

Winning first place for her poster was senior Maria Fontaine, whose sending school is Portland High School. Rowan Hoyt, a senior whose sending school is Casco Bay High School, won second place for her poster. Alyssa Doherty, a junior from Scarborough, achieved third place for her poster.

The store is displaying the winning posters, Manzi said.

Commercial art students at PATHS learn layout, design and effective composition. All the students have a specialty and learn how to commercialize and make income from their art.
