MOSAIC Student Artist Program
Blue Star Contemporary’s MOSAIC Student Artist Program is open to high school students who are interested in developing their professional artistic skills and careers in the arts. The after-school program is a combination of studio practice and exposure to the business side of art and arts administration. An extension of BSC’s educational programs, BSC is committed to giving MOSAIC students free access to quality arts education, encouraging high standards of achievement, and fostering excellence and leadership.
MOSAIC operates 5 days a week year-round. Students choose from one of two available schedules (MW or TTh) and have the option of participating in Open Studio on Fridays. This amounts to approximately to 9 hours in the studio per week.
Blue Star Contemporary’s MOSAIC Artist-in-Residence Alex Rubio and Studio Assistant Juan Zavala Castro mentor students in a diverse range of art mediums in an intensive, independent study format. The MOSAIC Student Art Gallery features student exhibitions, drawing hundreds of visitors and adds to San Antonio’s vibrant and rich visual culture. Students participate in BSC’s programs and have access to visiting artists.
100% of MOSAIC’s students have graduated high school and our concentration on college readiness prepares them for careers in the arts, sharing in San Antonio’s cultural economy and continuing BSC’s mission to inspire the creative genius in us all by nurturing artists through contemporary art.
BSC is currently recruiting students to participate in the Virtual MOSAIC Student Artist Program. New semester begins January 7, 2021.
This program is free and open to high school students upon successful application and portfolio review. For more information on the MOSAIC Student Artist Program please contact BSC Education Manager Mari Hernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
