Hundreds of supporters toured the 5th Annual Interior Design Portfolio Walk and Exhibition at Clover Park Technical College (CPTC) Friday, March 16, 2007.
The event featured the collection of work, designs and ideas of 19 graduating interior design students. A guest musician, food and refreshments from the Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management accompanied the beautiful floral arrangements designed by students enrolled in the Floral Merchandising and Design program.
Each interior design student had a display table compiled of their professional portfolio. Additionally, models, slide presentations, 3-D and drafting work, and the CPTC Culinary Arts Rainier Room Restaurant renovation was on display.
