Student Career Day 2013
Student Career Day was held on April 5, 2013 at Ardy’s Gallery of Window Coverings. The collaborative day of activities was full of opportunities to learn from experienced designers and trade partners. Students learned how to team with workrooms, contractors, and installers.
The theme of the event was ”Soft Window Treatments 101.” The day provided students with 13 do’s and 7 don’ts needed to know when specifying fabric choices, terminology, and more! During lunch, students asked questions from a panel of experienced designers. They ended the day with exciting sessions on how to work with trade professionals.
