PHS Students Win $1000 for Window Painting Contest
Featured

10 February 2016

PHS ART DEPARTMENT AWARDED $1000 BY YAVAPAI–PRESCOTT INDIAN TRIBE

Congratulations to the Prescott High School (PHS) Art Club Members along with the Art 1, 2, 3, 4 and Advanced Placement Art Students! They recently won the Frontier Village Center Christmas Window Painting Contest, sponsored by Frontier Village Center in conjunction with the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe. The combined, cooperative window painting project featured caroling snowmen singing at the historic Courthouse Plaza, a row of gingerbread laced Victorian Homes from Mt. Vernon and a silhouette of Santa lit by a full moon escaping a lasso wielding cowboy snowman.

The PHS Art Students spent many hours brainstorming theme ideas for the window. Once the concept was agreed upon, students dedicated endless hours of painting. All of their hard work paid off as community members of the Tri-City Area voted their window the best. Recently, Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe President Ernest Jones Sr., along with Bill Tucker, General Manager and Heather Tippit, Senior Administrator for the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe’s Commercial Real Estate Department, presented the PHS Art students with a check for $1,000 to buy art supplies for their classrooms. PHS art instructors Ann Hein and Amanda Chartier are incredibly proud of these amazing artists!
