At the same time, Paula found the students most gratifying to work with. Each student that is selected gets 0 gift card from either Blick or B&H including their teacher. Artists lined the room and concentrated on only the models in front of them. This event was open to not only the students, but whoever had a passion to paint and had a free moment to spare.Another firm that has stepped forward is Patterson Flynn Martin (PFM), a “bespoke” carpeting and rug company located in the D&D Building. On Saturday, March 15th the annual Draw-A-Thon was held in the High School of Art and Design cafeteria and gym. Fortunately for me, I was able to catch a few words with some of the crowd.PFM creates its own designs in a variety of materials, including wool, silk, metal, and synthetics. The people I interviewed differed from the models to the alumni of 1982 to future students.
Fortunately, Tina Li Sheff, a design educator and member of the neighborhood volunteer group called Friends of Art & Design (FAD), was familiar with many showrooms in the D&D Building.
She introduced some of them to the possibility of using the high school’s talented students as interns.

The first showroom-manager to respond was Paula Fleming of Fabricut, who was formerly Director of the Interior Design Department at Bloomingdale's. With her enthusiastic support and help, these high-school interns enjoyed and appreciated a challenging working and learning experience at Fabricut. Celine Adorno, Sumin Kim, Jasmine Qu and Cindy Rodriguez are four of 18 artists that were selected from 150 submissions for the Kylin Management LLC exhibition. The room was quiet and not a sound was heard besides that of pencils and paintbrushes flying against paper and canvas.

Many students were introduced to the business world through the school’s internship program.
According to Ira Merritt, the school’s “Work-Based Learning Coordinator,” both students and businesses have been discovering the benefits of working together.
During the past year, forty-six students from the High School of Art & Design were enrolled in internships throughout the City in a variety of businesses, from Met Life to AT&T. Merrit, 95% of the participating businesses were pleased with the students' performance.
And exposure to the practical world of work has enabled many of the student-interns to decide on their career choice.
