The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation has awarded a $3,000 grant to the Pinedale Fine Arts Council to help support PFACís arts in education programs.
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council is currently offering 20 different school arts programs in both ends of Sublette County. These include Dancerís Workshop programs, Utah Shakespeare, Fine Arts classes, a variety of school performances and a brand new STEAM workshop which will take place in both Pinedale and Big Piney. Recently students participated in a week-long project making two painting mosaic collages of maps: one of Yellowstone, and one of Wyoming. The final mosaics were almost 5ft square and represented non-traditional landscape art.
"We are pleased to be able to support the Pinedale Fine Arts Council through this grant, funded by our charitable arm, the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation," said Ron Wild, Rocky Mountain Power Regional Business Manager. "We feel that the arts education effort of PFAC is very important to the communities of Pinedale and Big Piney. PFAC brings programs that would be unavailable to the children otherwise. They are most deserving of this grant."
