Student Art Invitational (2011)

TACFA’s Annual Student Art Invitational showcases and rewards the artistic talents of Tustin middle and high school students. Students create works in a variety of visual media that are put on display for the community to enjoy. Student artists receive cash awards, and their respective art departments receive money for the future purchase of art supplies.   The 2011 Student Art Invitational was funded partially by a generous grant given to TACFA by the Santa-Ana Tustin Rotary Club and donations from Enderle Center, Chemers Gallery, AA Jewel Box and other generous community donors.  All art was on display at the Tustin Senior Center from April 2-28, 2011.
