At the request of the Pickens Revitalization Association, the National Art Honor Society has created two storyboards for a vacant building on Main Street in Pickens. These two art works show what sorts of businesses could be housed in the building. National Art Honor Society members designed and painted the storyboards for this community service project.
Jim Creal, a regionally renowned printmaker from Spartanburg recently spent two weeks with PHS visual art students to teach them drypoint engraving. He instructed students how to scribe a plate, ink and wipe it, and use the printing press to create print editions.

The National Art Honor Society at Pickens High School was asked last fall to paint a mural at the Pickens Fire Department to add some much needed décor to the firemen’s sleeping quarters. After discussing the project with Chris Elrod, Pickens Fire Chief, the group designed and painted a two-part mural that celebrates the heritage of the Pickens Fire Department, which was established in 1933.
Because we are committed to keeping our students safe behind the wheel, we have implemented a proactive program called Alive at 25 at all School District of Pickens County high schools. Students will not receive parking permits until they have successfully completed the course.
All upcoming classes are listed on the South Carolina Alive at 25 website: www.scaliveat25.org. Students may register online at www.scaliveat25.org or by calling the South Carolina National Safety Council office at 803-732-6778. During the registration process, students should specify the name of their own high schools so certificates can be sent to the proper schools. The staff at PHS cannot register your student for Alive at 25. You must do this through the phone number listed or online.
Here are the dates that are scheduled at PHS:
April 22, 2014 – 4:00 PM – 8:30 PM
June 10, 2014 – 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM
