Annual Spring Art Show

Each spring Mesa Art Studio holds an art show where students are able to showcase their art work from the previous year.  This year it will be held on:

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm

Located at The Art Garden Cafe Espresso

917 E. Vine Street

Murray, UT 84121

This art show is NOT a competition.  At Mesa Art we encourage creativity, unique style, and NO competition.  The students learn that art is subjective and that there is no right or wrong way to draw, paint and create. 

The art show is come and go from 4:00-6:00 on May 2nd.  Light refreshments will be served.  Beautiful art work from students ages 4-Adult will be displayed. If you can't make the date, the show will hang in the cafe for 2 weeks.

The artist’s work will be copied and the original work returned to them. A fabulous display of artwork will be set up in a local cafĂ© and there will be an artist’s reception with refreshments, family and friends. You don’t want to miss it!

WHAT’S COMING:  There are many fun and exciting things in store for our artists at Mesa Art.   New projects      are always in the making.  The remainder of this school year will be focused on the elements of art in CoLoR, value, and perspective, just to name a few.  There will be painting involved as well as our usual use of chalk/oil pastel, graphite and colored pencils, and the ever favorite JUiCy markers!!!  Expect wonderful things of your artists!!  Don’t forget SUMMER CAMPS!
