June JAM Session
Saturday, June 8, 2013
We brought community art to the Jeff Fest this year! Dawn and Chad welded giant butterfly frames and we invited the community to join in decorating them with spray paint and reclaimed plastic bottles. The end results are fluttering around Warder Park! Stop by and check them out!
March JAM Session
March 16, 2013
Spring is near and we are creating beautiful blooms! At this month's JAM Session the JAA will lead the community is making large, colorful flowers using old soda bottles, spray paint and wire. The finished pieces will hang on the fence at Ladybug's Landing Community Garden. The garden is located at 1814 E. Park Place (between Kewanna Drive and Ewing Lane). Many thanks to Tri Kappa who generously sponsored this month's community art session.
February JAM Session
February 23, 2013
This month we will be using old neckties to create an art quilt celebrating the community of Jeffersonville! Don't be intimidated by the quilting process, we will be using applique techniques with an iron-on adhesive backing to make the design process very easy! The finished art quilt will be a wall hanging about the size of a full size bed.
October JAM Session
October 27, 2012
Once again we had over 50 community members come together to join in the Jeffersonville Arts Movement. This month's mission... create giant dream catchers! Participants got a brief history lesson from Tresa Megenity as she told the legend behind the dream catchers. Dawn Struck and Molly Gruninger demonstrated a few useful techniques to mask off areas of the stretched silk frame and add beautiful colors around them. Many groups chose to work within a theme or color scheme to create a unified piece. For more photos of this event, visit us on Facebook!
September JAM Session
September 29, 2012
With over 50 people filling three Jeff High classrooms, we had a wonderful art-filled day! Community members teamed up to paint 16 colorful skull masks to be hung on Spring Street during October and the first few days of November. Tresa Megenity, a Spanish teacher at the school, was excited to share the history of El Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and explained that our masks are actually called calaveras. Members of the Jeffersonville Arts Alliance and the Jeff High Art Club were there to offer inspiration and assistance as our local artists painted their calaveras. For more photos of this event, please visit our facebook page. Many thanks to our generous sponsors!
