In the heart of Jersey City, City Swipes, a vibrant fluid art studio, is providing an escape for the everyday person seeking relief from the stresses of daily life.

Founded by former Wall Street executive turned art enthusiast Carri Degenhardt, City Swipes offers a unique and accessible way for individuals to de-stress and explore their creative side. No prior artistic experience is required, making it a welcoming space for beginners and seasoned artists alike.

“Fluid art is a therapeutic and meditative practice,” Degenhardt explains. “The process of pouring and manipulating paint allows people to let go of their worries and focus on the present moment. It’s a form of self-expression that is both calming and empowering.”

The studio hosts a range of workshops and classes, each tailored to meet various interests and skill levels. These sessions include everything from introductory lessons in acrylic pouring to more advanced classes that delve into complex color dynamics and artistic techniques. Participants leave with their own unique creations, often feeling a profound sense of accomplishment and refreshment.

“The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the transformation in people,” Degenhardt says. “They come in feeling stressed and overwhelmed, and they leave feeling relaxed, refreshed, and inspired.”

The benefits of fluid art extend beyond the studio walls. Many feel less anxious, more focused, and more connected to their inner creativity. Some have even found that fluid art has helped them to develop new problem-solving skills and to approach challenges with a more open mind.

For those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life, City Swipes offers a welcoming and inclusive space to explore creativity, de-stress, and connect with others. Whether a seasoned artist or a complete beginner, there’s a place for everyone at City Swipes.

Furthermore, Carri Louise Degenhardt extends her creative passion beyond the studio with “Swipes Wanderlust,”  which includes workshops, retreats, and a sunset art fair along the peaceful shores of Cape May. Participants enjoy warm summer days filled with fluid painting, gaining insights into color theory and techniques, all enhanced by the soothing ocean breeze. There’s a special magic in outdoor art – the shore’s cadence and the sky’s shades infuse the creative process. Whether it’s the vibrant colors, meditative practice, or the sheer delight of making a little of a mess, Swipes Wanderlust offers an unparalleled artistic adventure.

Carri’s fluid art creations and other inspired products are available for collectors at her gallery: Furthermore, her personal creations are making their way into galleries and boutiques throughout the North East
