JOSHUA TREE — The esteemed 29 Palms Art Gallery held a reception and awards presentation for its 2016 Annual Juried Students’ Art Show on January 17th. Student artists in Junior and Senior High School throughout the Morongo Basin were invited to present their two and three-dimensional art in competition for ribbon and cash awards, as well as participation in the gallery’s new art show running through January 31st. In the Hi-Desert Arts Academy Program’s inaugural first full academic year, its new art students drew much praise — taking top honors and painting a picture of the future success in store for the program.
The Hi-Desert Arts Academy Program is an arts educational program created by the joint efforts of the Hi-Desert Cultural Center and Hope Academy Charter School. While classes are included as part of the Hope Academy school’s free curriculum, students attending the classes include those from many of the area’s Morongo Unified School District schools as well as public/private charter and home-schooled students.
