Art Students Give Car Spiffy Transformation!

This summer, students in Carol Stirton-Broad's four-week art car workshop at Philadelphia's Fleisher Art Center have been transforming a (well-loved, but no so spiffy) car in Fleisher's parking lot. Through the workshop, students created the design plan and learned to execute it on a three-dimensional object. Mediums include mosaic elements, sculptural pieces, paint, fiber, and cut vinyl. On Monday, July, 28, beginning at 5:30 p.m., the students will begin to put the final touches on the car before it is returned to its owner and the road. 
Fleisher is a source of inspiration, creativity and community. Every year, more than 17,000 people experience the transformative power of art by participating in studio classes, exhibitions, and community-based programming. 
Founded in 1898, Fleisher is a nonprofit organization committed to advancing the vision of our founder, Samuel S. Fleisher, who believed that art is one of society’s greatest assets and equalizers, and from the doorway of his Graphic Sketch Club, “invited the world to come and learn art.”
