Immerse Yourself in Creativity at City Swipes Fluid Art Studio

Tucked away just two PATH train stops from the World Trade Center in downtown Jersey City, City Swipes is more than an art studio; it’s a sanctuary for creativity.

Founded by Carri Louise Degenhardt, who transitioned from a successful career on Wall Street to an evangelist for the arts, City Swipes is a place where anyone can unleash their inner artist.

City Swipes specializes in fluid art, a fascinating technique that involves pouring acrylic paints onto canvases to form intricate and colorful designs. This medium marries control with chaos, science with imagination. At City Swipes, there’s no need for prior artistic experience—everyone is encouraged to dive in and express themselves.

“Fluid art is about embracing imperfection and finding beauty in the unexpected,” Carri says. “Our goal at City Swipes is to offer a space where people can find joy in creating and connect with their inner artist.”

City Swipes offers a range of experiences tailored to spark your creativity. Casual drop-in sessions are perfect for those looking to try fluid art without a significant time commitment.

For a more immersive experience, the comprehensive 7-week course delves into the science and techniques behind fluid art. The studio also hosts pop-up workshops in scenic locations, such as the picturesque shores of Cape May, New Jersey.

Participants often describe their experiences at City Swipes as transformative. One attendee mentioned arriving at the studio feeling stressed and overwhelmed, only to leave feeling rejuvenated and inspired. The act of creating art, supported by a positive and encouraging community, proved to be profoundly therapeutic.

City Swipes fosters a sense of community and collaboration. Workshops and classes are designed to encourage interaction and connection among participants who share a passion for fluid art.

This supportive atmosphere extends online through City Swipes’ vibrant  YouTube channel, where Carri shares tips, tutorials, and behind-the-scenes insights into the fluid art process.

In addition to its regular offerings, City Swipes has recently launched “Swipes Wanderlust,” an initiative that takes the fluid art experience on the road. This summer, participants can look forward to pop-up workshops, a sunset open-air art event, and a limited-enrollment retreat in Cape May. These events provide unique opportunities for serious creatives to deepen their practice in inspiring new environments.

City Swipes invites both locals and visitors to discover the transformative power of fluid art. Whether you’re a Jersey City resident or visiting from afar, you’re welcome to explore your creativity, connect with a vibrant community, and unleash your inner artist in a world of swirling colors and endless possibilities.

For more information and to book your session, visit City Swipes. Join us on a journey of creative discovery and let the vibrant chaos of fluid art inspire you.
