ART SHOWS!

Newtown Park & Rec's fall event

Art In The Park

29 students participated in our "Portraits of Change" art project and art exhibit at Countryside Gallery in Newtown last spring.  The students work and their art show helped to promote tolerance and positive change by serving as a fundraiser for The Peace Center of Langhorne and by paying tribute to individuals devoted to peace, equality and helping others.  The "Portraits of Change" art show was so well received that the students were also invited to show their paintings for 3 months at Doylestown Hospital's ArtWalk!

Newtown Art for Kids' summer art exhibit at The Churchville Nature Center's 50th Anniversary Celebration!

"If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere." - Vincent Van Gogh

Each year, new art students are invited to observe and paint a species of caterpillar, butterfly, or chrysalis that inhabits the nature center.

Their artwork is then photographed an printed on an outdoor sign to help docents and visitors identifiy what they see during their visit to the nature center.

Photographs of the artwork are also used to make note cards that are donated to the nature center's giftshop as a fund raiser.

Newtown Art for Kids at Countryside Gallery!

Our annual art shows at Countryside Framing & Gallery either showcase the students' personal best works, or sometimes we have a themed show

such as "Discovering America's Treasures through Art" which featured paintings of scenes from our country's beautiful National and State Parks.

Countryside Framing and Art Gallery is located at 2 South State Street, Newtown PA 18940

Thank you Richard Fekete and Michael Hammer for being so supportive of our young artists!

SPRING ART SHOW:

Participating in our spring art show does help build confidence and gives students a goal to work towards. Our shows also offer your family and friends a chance to be included in celebrating your child's achievements and show their support during our Opening Day Reception parties. (And hey...who doesn't love free cookies!)

FRAMING:  I do not require students to frame their work for our spring art show.  However if you do frame your work after the art show I hope you will consider using COUNTRYSIDE FRAMES in historic Newtown.  I have used Countryside Frames many times and they do an amazing, high quality job with excellent frame design suggestions. Richard and Michael have been very generous in hosting our Art for A Cause student art shows at Countryside for many years.  They have been very supportive of youth art in our community and have offered good advice to our aspiring young artists.  Often the professional artists who show their work at Countryside have come out to support our kids as well. Thank you Richard and Michael for all you do!

NEED TO SKIP A CLASS?  I offer Partial Pro-rating with advanced notice:

  

If you let me know the days you need to miss class before the 1st of the month I will prorate your invoice for that month. You will not be charged for the class that you cannot attend and you will not have to schedule a make-up class. After the 1st of the month, cancellations are not refundable. If you need to cancel a class at the last minute you are welcome to schedule a makeup class for your child.  I do request a courtesy call or text  to let me know that your child will not be coming so that I can offer the spot to another student who needs to do a make up class.  Please do not ask other classmates to give me the message for you.  By the time class starts, it is too late for me to call another student to offer them the spot for a make up class.  I do not give refunds or make ups for no-shows with no courtesy call.    Thank you in advance for your consideration.
