Since 2012, Idyllwild Arts Academy has partnered with premiere Palm Desert gallery, Melissa Morgan Fine Art, in a showcase for 12th grade and Post-Grad Visual Arts majors. Through nearly a full year of planning and creation students install refined, innovative and dynamic works across a variety of mediums that demonstrate the versatile nature of the arts program at Idyllwild Arts Academy–from painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, digital and graphic arts, ceramics and mixed media.  A rite of passage for Visual Artists, the senior exhibitions present truly groundbreaking conceptual and technical acumen as students transition from high schooler to emerging artists who are well-equipped to continue a profound creative journey in college and beyond. The opening reception will bring together all of those represented in the show, so guests can speak directly with the artists about their work. We are excited to return in 2024 with even MORE artwork in year’s past, based on feedback from Melissa Morgan!

Following the gallery reception, walk a block to the gallery’s outdoor sculpture garden at 73-785 El Paseo for a special Idyllwild Arts Student Songwriting concert featuring original compositions spanning genres from rock, pop, and alternative to R&B and progressive soul. Don’t miss this vibrant celebration of the the art and music world’s next generation!
