Congratulations To our Desert Shadows District Art Show Winners!

Last year Desert Shadows Middle School participated in the PV School District's Art Show. Judging of student artwork for the Visual Art District Purchase Awards was done by Robert Panzer, Director of Arts Education for the Peoria Unified School District. Robert is an artist himself and has a BFA in Photography and a Master's degree in Art Education, both from ASU.

Out of four middle school students selected for the District Purchase awards, two of the winners were Desert Shadows students – 8th grader Tammy Nguyen and 7th grader Lauren McGrath. 

We wish to congratulate both of these creative and hard-working students, and wish them continued success in their artistic endeavors.

PVSchools offers comprehensive fine arts programming for all students in kindergarten through grade 12. All fine arts courses are taught by highly qualified, properly certified instructors who are passionate about student learning in the arts.

Desert Shadows offers visual arts courses in painting, drawing and ceramics. If you love art, we hope you’ll take part in one of these classes. Who knows – you could be our next award winner!
