2014 Second Saturdays April

19 Dixon High School art students show 39 artworks on this special Second Saturdays

This is one of my favorite Second Saturdays.  Last year was our first year showcasing Dixon High School artists.  Mike Olsen, Dixon High School art teacher has quite the line up this year.  He told me his students were 'really into it' this year.  I think Second Saturdays is an awesome way to celebrate our youth and give them an experience showing their art to the public.  

April Second Saturdays, features Dixon High School student artists, Saturday, Apr. 12, 2014, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., on Hennepin Ave and First Street out through Ottawa Ave.

April Second Saturdays showcases the second annual Dixon High School Art Department Student Art Show. Mike Olson's Art classes will display a variety of mediums at various venues to include: acrylic, watercolor, drawing, and digital media works of art.

    ----------- TIPS --------------

    Limited quantities. If you put multiples of an item you want and we only have one in stock an alert will pop up on the desktop site telling you it is out of stock. That means the quantity you selected is higher than the available inventory. For example, Tufa Troughs are all unique. There is only one of each. Each week we take an inventory and add back products that might show as sold out. We’re doing this so we don’t oversell by mistake. So our product availability will change weekly.

    iPad shopping. We learned that the pop-up screen where you enter your credit card info was a problem for some. At times the credit card fields were way at the top of the screen and some could not see where to enter their information when shopping on an iPad. This happened especially when they had big orders. If you have problems please message our Facebook Page. We’re learning right along with you and want to help.
