    Basketball Lovers & Painters Unite!

    Art, basketball, and jazz kept Barkely L. Hendricks out of trouble and now you can see how, as well as dabble in your own love of sports and art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA).

    PAFA' s offering a free Artmaking Workshop: Basketball Paintings, starting at 2 p.m. Sunday. You can paint your own sports art from basketball playing models, and draw on influence from Hendricks' works, uwishunu notes.

    The academy, located at 118 N. Broad Street, has been presenting a first career retrospective on the artist, a Philadelphia native and PAFA alumnus. But it ends today, so you'd better hurry.

    Hendricks is a contemporary American painter who's currently a professor of art at Connecticut College.
