Phoenix Day School for The Deaf students win art awards

De’VIA art contest celebrates the work of Phoenix Day School for The Deaf students
Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

Six students from the Phoenix Day School for The Deaf recently won awards for their submissions to the De’VIA art contest.

With over 700 submissions, the chances of winning are quite small but not for the talented artists at PDSD, representatives there contend.

De’VIA, which stands for Deaf View/Image Art, was started by Chuck Baird, who was born deaf. His passion was to have youth artists surrounded by art that expresses the Deaf Experience from a cultural, linguistic, and intersectional point of view, School for The Deaf representatives report.

The De’VIA competition is available to all deaf and hard of hearing school-age children and youth.

Artists are encouraged to incorporate one or more aspects of Deaf people’s communication, culture, or history in their submissions.

Elementary student winners are: Ana Ochoa, Rebecca Petersen, Robert Tellez and Xavier Gardea-Zavala.
