Art Students Assist Animal Shelter


Animals at the Russellville Animal Shelter are getting some extra publicity thanks to Arkansas Tech students.  Students at Tech enrolled in a design class worked to create a new poster and logo for the Russellville Animal Shleter.

Edwin Cuenco, assistant professor of art, teaches the class, and each student was responsible for designing a poster and logo the shelter could use as part of its promotional materials.  In all, more than 20 designs were given to the shelter at the conclusion of the project.

Cuenco says the students’ posters were designed to encourage animal adoption and focused on the services the animal shelter provides.

Tammie Case, shelter supervisor, says students “did an excellent job creating a poster with the message of animal adoption.” Case says some of designs will likely appear as t-shirts and other memorabilia.

Edwin Cuenco says he’s pleased with the quality of work the students produced. He adds, “These students are from a variety of majors, and they worked diligently to produce a product that will be of use to the Russellville Animal Shelter.”
