2015-04-16_13-53-42Spring classes begin on April 26th at Creation Imagination Art Studio, celebrating its’ 10th anniversarylocated at 122 West 12th St. right here in Bayonne.

Classes are run by artist and educator Stacey A, Kaelin. From the website:

From digital dreamlands to highly rendered traditional media, my work celebrates the poetic interplay of texture and form. Character designs spring to life as 3D digital sculptures with believable musculature and anatomy. As a result, fantasy and realism fuse together making it difficult to discern what is real and what is imagined.
