MOSAIC Student Artist Program


The Contemporary at Blue Star’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 the Contemporary’s educational programs, we are committed to giving MOSAIC students free access to quality arts education, encouraging high standards of achievement, and fostering excellence and leadership.

MOSAIC Visiting Artists 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 the Contemporary’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 the Contemporary’s mission to inspire the creative genius in us all by nurturing artists through contemporary art.
