A big, warm thank you to Iris Sutton and the Fairbanks Arts Association Artists in Schools Residency Program for their support and time in assisting our students to create a beautiful mural at YESS Secondary School.

The staff and students appreciated local artist Iris Sutton’s art classes and direction, we are all immensely proud of what we’ve all learned and the completed project. Iris’s bright and vibrant style of art helped us create a stunning mural that will be proudly displayed in our common area for many years to come, and her classes assisted the students in finding new ways to express themselves.

The whole process was a wonderful experience, again thank you all so much for what you do for our schools and students. We also thank all supporters of the Alaska State Council on the Arts, which help make things like this possible.
