FHHS Students Take Art Prizes

Clayton Heid and Emily Phifer received first-place ribbons at the Union Academy Community Carnival Art Show.

On Saturday, April 9th, Union Academy hosted their first ever Community Carnival. This Carnival was for the entire family. They had games, a petting zoo, pony rides, an art show, and so much more! Four Forest Hills students walked away with ribbons for their outstanding artwork.

Leah Lewis, a FHHS senior, won a second place ribbon for her “Disco Party”. She won in the category of sculpture. Her artwork was created from foam-core, paint, glitter, Styrofoam, computer print-outs, and hot glue. This project literally makes you want to dance!

Elizabeth Pugh, a sophomore, earned a third place ribbon for her notebook. She titled it, “My Photography”. Elizabeth took a regular spiral bound notebook and transformed it into an amazing journal depicting scenes from her trip to Africa. All the photographs were taken by Elizabeth while on her trip to Africa.

Clayton Heid, another senior at FHHS, won a first place ribbon for his ceramic guitars. Clayton sculpted three guitars from clay using nothing but his hands and simple pottery tools. He was trying to capture the feeling of the 1960’s, 1970’s, and the 1980’s. He created a guitar for each era. Keep on rockin’ Clayton!

Emily Phifer, a twelfth grader, created a giant pair of sunglasses out of cardboard. Her glasses represent the roaring times of the 1950’s. She used cardboard, computer print-outs, CD’s, paint, watercolors, glitter, and marker to create this gigantic masterpiece.

These are just a handful of the outstanding artists at Forest Hills. We are so proud of you guys! Keep on creating!
