Art Students Paint Ceiling Tiles for the Fourth Year


Masden Embry, Paolite Staff Writer

This year marks the PHS Art Department’s fourth year of painting ceiling tiles. 

This month, students in Drawing 2 and Drawing 3 Honors classes painted a total of 16 tiles for teachers around PHS.

Staff members signed up via email and provided an idea of what they wanted to the students making their ideas come to life. 

The money raised was put into an account that will pay for extras the Art Department needs, each tile costing $20.

“We’ve purchased new software, a bluetooth speaker and things like that with the ceiling tile money,” said art teacher Chris Jones.

In the spring, another round of tiles will be painted, although this time by junior high students in Art 2. These will be specifically for Throop Elementary teachers.
