MOSAIC Student Artist Program

Renowned muralist and Blue Star’s Artist-in-Residence Alex Rubio mentors students five days a week, after school and during summers, for an intensive, year-round, arts education. Students participate in Blue Star’s programs, and also attend workshops, lectures, and exhibitions at local cultural institutions and artist studios to gain further exposure to the city’s artistic landscape.

Student exhibitions and public art projects, which include a large hand-made mosaic mural at H-E-B’s East Side location and the River Walk’s Compass Rose designating the city’s geographic center, become part of San Antonio and its vibrant and rich visual culture.

MOSAIC’s students often come from high schools in lower-income districts with lower-than-average graduation rates. 100% of MOSAIC’s students have graduated high school and many go on to college and careers in the arts, sharing in San Antonio's cultural economy and continuing Blue Star’s mission to inspire the creative genius in us all by nurturing artists in a contemporary art museum.

This program is free and available for ages 13-19 years old. For more information or to schedule a portfolio review, please contact Alex Rubio, MOSAIC Artist-in-Residence, at
