    ARC Program 2019-20 

    PHS Art students in the AP Drawing & Painting, IB Visual Arts, and Pottery classes are participating in the Artists Reaching Classrooms program at the Taft Art Museum with teachers Lindsay Holliday, Elizabeth Rodak, and Rachelle Williams.
    During the first tour of the museum, students selected an artwork that they will write an artist statement for. We will return in December for presentations. We will also work with several local artists during this program! This is an amazing opportunity for our students to experience art and make meaningful connections!

    CAC Outreach Program 2019-20

    The AP Photo & Digital, AP Drawing & Painting, and IB Visual Arts classes are participating in the Outreach Program at the Contemporary Arts Center. We visited the CAC to see artwork by Saya Woolfalk, Jens Swarz, Pamela Phaisimo Sunstrum, and Robert Colescott. Viewing artwork in person is a valuable real world learning experience! Students were able to engage in the exhibit, ask questions, and look for inspiration for their own art making practices. Check out the photos in the slideshow from our visit!

     

    Artists Reaching Classrooms Program  

    Local Artist Saad Ghosn visited PHS as a part of the Artists Reaching Classrooms program with the Taft Art Museum. The IB Visual Art, AP Drawing & Painting, and Pottery classes are all participating in this program this year. Saad Goshn uses woodblock printmaking to make his art so that he can repeat his important messages about identity, stereotypes, privilege, inequality and justices, as well as other social issues. His artwork is a call for compassion and action to address these issues to make our world a better place. Our "road to peace is based on respect that requires justice." The artist spent the class period with our students analyzing his artwork and discussing these topics in small groups.
