Sandia Heights Artists support La Mesa Arts Academy
La Mesa Arts Academy provides free visual and performance arts classes after school for students at La Mesa Elementary School in Albuquerque's International District. Created in 2006, over 200 students participate in these art, music, and dance classes each year.
Along with donation boxes at each tour stop, every artist donates a portion of their tour sales to La Mesa Arts Academy. The donations are used to provide professional instructors and art supplies for the program.
