High school cosmetology teacher Candace Rodriguez and art teacher Heather Toomey recently collaborated to create business cards for the cosmetology students to display at their styling stations. Students decided how they wanted to market themselves to show their specialty, such as a focus on hair, skin, nails or make up. Then Toomey and her electronic illustration students created the professional designs for the cards, and used a 3D printer to make card display holders for the styling stations.

“Seeing the students light up when I handed out the cards was amazing to see,” said Rodriguez. “They were really proud to put them on display.”

“It was so much fun collaborating with the cosmetology department,” said Toomey. “The business cards look fantastic and all of the students involved are so professional. I look forward to working with Mrs. Rodriguez and the cosmetology classes in the future on more creative projects.”
