John Acosta, a sculptor, painter and muralist from St. Paul, directed a community workshop for about 100 guests Sept. 21 at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.
His presentation included group and individual consultations regarding the intrinsic value of self-expression via visual art.
His exhibit "Paintings with Respect and a Dream" continues to Oct. 5 in the CLC Gallery.

The artist also spent part of Sept. 22 working with Mississippi Horizons School students and instructors Jeff Kidder and Sandy Nielsen.
