11 high school students in front of their artwork on snow plows
  • District News

In case you missed them during the Homecoming Parade, check out these colorful Commerce City snow plows!

For more than 20 years, Adams City High School students in the visual arts program have gone on a field trip each year to paint the blades of the city’s snow plows. The Commerce City Police Department transports the students to the Commerce City Public Works building, and the city pays for lunch and all the art supplies.

Students divide into groups and create a design incorporating elements from everyone’s ideas. From there, they start drawing the design on the plow using chalk and then paint it.

The snow plow artwork first appears during the Homecoming Parade and is an amazing way to showcase our students’ talent and creativity.

Keep an eye out for the snow plows during our first few snow storms of the winter season. You might still catch our students’ artwork!
