Temecula Preparatory School has been awarded a grant for approximately $2,000 from Macy's for its upper school (grades 7-12) art program.

The art program is led by Stephen Packard, who recently had his artwork showcased in a teacher's art exhibition in Santa Ana. All three paintings submitted by Packard were chosen for showing by the California Art Education Association.

Packard said he is excited about the grant from Macy's for study in art/printmaking.

"Printmaking will be a valuable addition to our program," said Packard (right). "The expressive power of prints have been an integral part of art history and the students will be intrigued by the process and enjoy the possibilities of this medium."

Headmaster Scott Phillips expressed his appreciation to Macy's for the grant.

"We would like to thank Macy's for its generous support of art in education," Phillips said. "The arts and humanities are extremely important and for this reason we utilize the classical model. At a time when many schools are being forced to discontinue their art programs, we are grateful to companies like Macy's who provide support so we can keep ours."
