Under the Sea

Desmond students create aquatic art from fabric
July 13, 2017



It didn’t take long for a group of inventive adult students at Mount Saint Mary College’s Desmond Campus to turn a few scraps of fabric into vibrant underwater art, complete with coral, starfish, and other peaceful residents of the deep.

The recent class was just one of hundreds of non-credit courses the Desmond campus offers for the adult learner, including Zumba Gold, Hatha Yoga, T’ai Chi, oil and acrylics, drawing, guitar workshops, art history, foreign languages, technology, and more. Classes are offered during the day, in the evening, and on Saturdays.

Upcoming courses include How to Publish a Book with Amazon (July 18 and September 23), Conversational Art (July 25), Intro to Professional Puppet Building (August 12), and Calligraphy for Beginners (October 24).

The Desmond campus is located at 6 Albany Post Rd., Newburgh, N.Y.
