Graphic Arts

Art Studios online classes include four pre-recorded sessions that will be released weekly to class registrants. Class experiences are roughly one hour each week. Students should plan to pause during the lesson to move through the process led by the teacher. 

 

Students will also have the opportunity to meet virtually via Zoom for one hour on a weekly basis with their classmates and teacher to review their work and ask questions. Class release dates and scheduled virtual meeting times are listed within each class description below. Please note: class viewing will be available for one week after the last class date. 

 

Please be sure to check your email for a message from our Box Office with both the Vimeo link and password for how to watch the pre-recorded video and the Zoom links to join the weekly calls, sent 3 - 7 days before the start date of your online class. If you’re still having trouble accessing your classes? Contact ArtStudioClass@mesaartscenter.com for help with links and questions. Or contact our Box Office by phone Tuesdays- Fridays 12 - 5 p.m. at 480-644-6500.

Water color canyons

Welcome to the world of acrylic painting, an art world full of versatility and bright, bold colors. Because acrylics are water based, it offers opacity (meaning you can paint right over your mistakes) which makes this medium especially appealing to beginners. Additionally, experienced artists can take full advantage of the unique properties that acrylics offer and push the boundaries beyond their current artistic capabilities.
