Last spring, art teacher Denise Tanaka led a design contest for South Pasadena Middle School students.
By News Desk
Itusi Yoshioka, who is now a freshman at South Pasadena High School, won the design contest.
Yoshioka created an image that depicts the disciplines that encompass the arts building, including music, visual arts, drama, and robotics. Many students in 7th and 8th grades brought Yoshioka’s design to life by preparing and painting a custom-sized banner, which is now complete and affixed to the wall.
South Pasadena Unified used funding provided by its Los Angeles County Arts Education Collective Advancement Grant for the banner materials.
Kudos to Denise Tanaka for guiding the students through this experience.
