FHS Art Department -A day with Ian Blewitt

FHS class of 2007 graduate Ian Blewitt visited all of the high school studio art classes to describe how his education in art and technology lead to his career. Ian is a professional “compositor” working full-time in the motion picture industry and lives in “the Valley” in Los Angeles, California.  A compositor “paints” the computer-generated images in movies. He shared his portfolio through his Vimeo site and his IMDb (Internet Movie Database) entry.  In addition to donating his time for the day, Ian presented the Art Department with a generous check for $500 towards a field trip or artist-in-residence program, yet to be determined. Ian’s last gift to the art department was applied toward a residency with local glass fusing artist Sheree Ferrato for all studio students. Ian’s visits are always exciting, insigIan Blewitthtful and inspiring to the student artists.
