Jerry Puryear

Program Manager

My studies at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. and later at Saint Joseph’s University (Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts) have served as my foundation in art education. Most of my work is acrylic on canvas. However, I use whatever medium that I can find from plexiglas, wood or any upcycled material, because everything has value and can be made into something beautiful.

Although, my creations are ultimately my strongest vehicle of change, I find it necessary to have a hand in helping to change the world by impacting young people’s lives. Over the past 10 years I have served as the Resident Teaching Artist and mentor with the Fine Art Through Our Eyes art program under the Mill Creek Community Partnership.
