Art Department



Mesa High's Art department offers a variety of art experiences for students to satisfy their creative endeavors through such courses as Jewelry, Photography, Ceramics, Stained Glass, Drawing, and Painting. 

All of our teachers have a strong background in art with advanced degrees in their subject areas. Our teachers are practicing artists with a deep love for art.

It is our hopes that all students will value the experiences in art that we offer the students of Mesa High School. Our emphasis is on the development of the creative mind, problem solving, appreciation for being, development of the individual, and an understanding of culture and art.
