Artist, administrator, gallery director, arts advocate Libby Newman has been using her art and life to promote peace and love. She has created this recent body of eight mixed-media works on paper to share her emotions regarding the current state of the world as hostile and conflict ridden.

Brandywine now has new websites that connects to programs and the digital portal project with Satellite Collection institutions.

Although in the early development stages, we are happy to launch prototypes for the free educational service and digital portal, brandywine.art ™ and the custom website for students and teachers, iCreatezone.org.

brandywine.art™ domain name is not available, so we are using brandywine-art.orgThere you will find information on our approach to multiculturalism and STEAM learning through the resources of our digital image library, video and paper archives and related content that is being generated by Brandywine and its Satellite Collection partners. Over the next several months the content and instructional resources will grow, special promotions and scholarship will be added through thebrandywne-art.org/magazine section.

Brandywine.art targets as its audience anyone interested in learning about, producing or studying the visual arts from the perspective of a culturally diverse database.  A database targeted to students (9-12 grade and college level) and their teachers has been created as a destination for these individuals to learn, share and dialogue about contemporary arts and related issues such as arts integration with the learning of science, technology, engineering and math (STEAM).  As a destination, visitors will find digital technology projects designed by students, evaluated by students and executed by students to advance peer learning in a classroom setting or independently through self-study. There will also appear later this fall, competitions inspiring youth, individually and small teams, to create in collaboration.

Follow our progress on Facebook, Tumblr and Youtube.

brandywine-art.org is now open.
