PHS to host VASE competition

Permian High School will host the Regional VASE, or Visual Arts Scholastic Event, competition from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Thirteen schools from across Region 18 are participating with 491 student works of art to be judged and displayed, plus more than a dozen workshops like watercolor, name design, metal tooling, collage, a yarn wrapping area, and an art rocks collage.

The art departments of Odessa College and UTPB are also involved. The mission of VASE is to recognize exemplary student achievement in the visual arts. Winners from this regional contest can advance to the State VASE.
