Pearl Sandoval, a junior at Page High School, is passionate about art and has developed methods that have allowed her art to grow and thrive the last year despite setbacks caused from COVID-19 shutdowns and closures.

Sandoval dabbles in several different art styles and forms, but her preferred style is pop art – an art form that draws from commercial items and cultural icons such as product labels, advertisements and modern media.

“Pearl is a star!” exclaimed Sandoval’s art teacher, Sue Tucker, who has been teaching Sandoval since she was in sixth grade. “As my student, teaching Pearl is very exciting because I’ve seen her growing as an artist since she was in middle school.”
