PVS 8th Grader WINS First Place!
Ian Johnson’s Colorful ‘Butterfly Graphic’ Caught the Eye of Judges
When representatives from the Prescott Valley Civic Center contacted Lisa Bellavance, an art teacher at Prescott Valley School, and asked her to submit some of her students’ work for a juried exhibit, she was more than happy to help.
When Bellavance learned that one of her student’s paintings won first place in the exhibit, she was delighted.
Eighth grader Ian Johnson’s “Butterfly Graphic” project, a mixed media piece that used oil crayons, watercolor markers and colored pencils, was named the winner of the exhibit. In all, about 22 pieces created by Prescott Valley School students in grades 1 through 12 were on display at the Civic Center.
