The New Mexico School for the Arts held a variety of student workshops last week at the Artesia Public Library, Artesia Historical Museum and Art Center, and Ocotillo Performing Arts Center. Workshops on Creative Writing, Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre and Music were offered, and local participants were able to join NMSA students in a Showcase performance Jan. 27 at the OPAC.
