The duCret School of Art held an Aerosol Even on Saturday, July 13, 2019. The event took place on the grounds of the duCret School of Art and was a rousing success. Participants 18 years of age and old were provide hands-on instruction in the use of aerosol paint and how large scale pieces of art are conceived and executed. Those under 18 years of age were provide art supplies and encouraged to create colorful and imaginative pieces.
The Aerosol Event was the launch of duCret’s foray into the Urban Art form and the precursor to the Urban Art class that will be offered at duCret this coming fall on Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. Participants displayed a great deal of interest in registering for these classes, which will be taught by three accomplished Urban Artists who were also the instructors at the Aerosol Event.
It was so exciting to watch these artists; Snow, Distort, and Clarence Rich give future artists the knowledge and depth into the intricacies Aerosol Art. The large three sided piece of art is currently on display outside on the grounds of duCret and we welcome anyone who would like to see the art to visit our campus.
“We are so happy that this event was a success!” Says Timothy Priano, Chairman of the Board of Trustees at duCret School of the Arts. duCret would like to thank the sponsors of the event for their generous support; Costco and McDonald’s. We would also like to thank the Alpha Theta Alpha Sorority Incorporated Plainfield Chapter whose generous support enable 20 more teens to participate free of charge in this event, which was amazing!
Founded in 1926, the duCret School of Art is the oldest arts school in New Jersey. For 92 years duCret has nurtured many local artists as well as art collectors. The studio-based classroom experience enables students to study basics in composition, design and color theory and to prepare their own professional portfolio. The duCret building in Plainfield, NJ was originally built in 1896 by the George Strong family and was later converted in the 1930's by the Wardlaw School for boys. Since duCret’s purchase of the building in 1970 the house has been a site for the preservation and promotion of fine art.
