Inspired by the Paintings of Marlis Jermutus featured in the current show Form and Space.

The hands-on project will adopt Marlis’ “brushless” technique.

Using acrylic medium (in analogous colors), spray bottles of water, additives, and gel, classes will explore the fluidity of acrylic medium on canvases that will be maneuvered/tilted throughout, to create a “molten” effect via gravity.

This is a somewhat “messy” procedure, so participants are advised not to wear their “best” clothing. We have ‘work-T-shirts’ available, but paint does tend to “travel” during the creative process!

Welcome to the jewel of the Caribbean!

We presented an exciting photography show to
share with the students as seen through
the lenses of a dozen photographers.

The students were able to experience the people, places and American cars that tell the story of this unique country.

Students had an to opportunity to recognize and explore narrative photography with a hands-on
project using Instax instant cameras.
They used a variety of objects to create their
own stories and relate them in haiku.

Cowboy Up! opens a new academic year for our Explorations art sessions at Liberty Arts. This is a juried show, featuring exhibits in a variety of media celebrating the culture and evolution of the Working Cowboy of the American West through painting, photography and sculpture.

Our hands-on project was inspired by saddles and boots featured in cowboy culture, and offered an opportunity to create leather bookmarks using stamping techniques.
