President Barack Obama will visit Manor New Tech High School this Thursday as part of the president's Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Tour. The Manor New Tech High School opened in 2007 with intentions of preparing students to succeed in an information-based and technologically advanced society. This visit is very near and dear to our hearts at Gallery Direct, as we have been a business partner of Manor Schools for several years now.  Several of their hallways are adorned with artwork created by Gallery Direct. Manor's executive team asked us to donate artwork for the President's visit. We are honored to be able to be a small part in this huge initiative.

After the recent art makeover of Manor ISD’s Oak meadows elementary, the high school art students decided to visit the Gallery Direct offices in Austin, Texas.  Everyday we transform original works of art into pretty much anything you can think up, from wall sized art to prints on unique materials such as birchwood and aluminum!   students admiring the gallery checking out our fun graffiti wall mural   The students were eager to see the equipment and the process we use to create the prints found throughout our office and we were excited to show them every step of the process, from imaging to framing; which is now widely spread out since our recent renovation and growth!     We could tell by the conversations the students were having towards the end of the tour about the many creative ways in which they could print their own artwork or possibly have  future careers working with art, that they left inspired - & of course not empty handed.
