Chalk Makes PV Pop!

Anthony Vang

Art can be used to express yourself in many versatile ways. Some of these students wanted to express themselves or just simply wanted to make their campus look pretty. Every year in October, students of PV come together to design art in the many quads on campus. From pop culture to emotions to symbols; the students can put whatever they desire into their artwork.

Pastels in the Quads is a running tradition of Pleasant Valley High School. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 in the past couple of years, the event was canceled for two years. Thankfully, with everything reverting back to normal, the beloved event returned last year. The event is held by Ms. Greene and assisting art teachers. Ms.Greene has a stern belief that Pastels in the Quads is a healthy event for the school. Greene states, “Pastels in the Quads encourages kids to be a part of their school and join in on fun activities.”

Many varieties of artwork surrounded the quads. From a solar system backdrop to a monarch butterfly. In honor of the spooky season, many works of art had a halloween theme to them. Including a zombie hand coming out of a grave with an eyeball in its hand. There were also many pop culture references like a Frankenstein Snoopy and a witch Woodstock from Charlie Brown. Kendall Thau and Anna Haro said their favorite chalk drawing was “Just Ken while riding a horse, the art piece represents power and confidence.”

Moreover, Anthony wants to help those who aren't so fortunate enough to stand on their own and for the world to hear their voice.
