KST Presents

KST’s Alloy Studios | 5530 Penn Ave.

Let’s delve into the world of self-discovery through arts and crafts! The class is divided into three distinct phases. From canvas painting, tactile sculpting and mixed media collages, to art journaling, the class invites individuals, families and friends to experiment with multiple forms of artistic expression.


Juliandra Jones is a self-taught mixed-media artist, muralist, live painter, entrepreneur and educator from Las Vegas, NV. She uses vinyl, acrylic, aerosol paint and natural elements– like crystals– in her paintings, woodcuts, sculptures and public art projects to explore themes of social justice and self care. Her art brings people together, elevates marginalized voices and centers happiness and joy. Through her murals, Juliandra creates public artworks and public spaces that are bright, inclusive, community-driven and welcoming for all. Her process is deeply collaborative and invites other artists, youth, community leaders and local residents to assist in the development of new work.
