The students will be encouraged to wear masks as well and will be provided. We will adhere to social distancing in the classrooms with a maximum of 10 students per room as well as no rotating between rooms for activities.

Mr. Aufiery has exhibited in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and South Florida as well as the Museum of American Art, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia, and the Portland Museum of Art. Visit Dennis’ website at www.dennisaufiery.com.

I want to get below the surface of things when I make art.
I’m after something essential – something that moves me.
It all comes from life experience and my understanding of art, past and present. I want to communicate my experience and explore what is possible.
“Creativity takes courage”, said Matisse.
Creativity can take many forms. I am the kind of artist who is willing to work in many ways. I feel the potential of human expression is boundless. It’s all a matter of taking a risk.
