SAA Student Jon Smith has just completed a 19th century French "block print" style mural in a residence here in Denver. Working with the client took a great intellectual skill set to decisively match the clients perception of beauty to a mural that could have the same felt emotions by other viewers. Jon Smith hit his design target right on and produced a mural of a subtle and stunning beauty that simultaneously conveyed an understanding of the simplicity of modern values.

The School of Applied Arts is a 501c3 non-profit school EIN 20-4025519
