Art With a Purpose

Art With a Purpose is a donation-based art program at The House Next Door.  The goal of this program is to produce artwork that is an expression of personal experience and meaningful purpose in a supportive environment. The participant in Art With a Purpose is encouraged to use collage, relevant imagery, text, and conceptual development of ideas to signify their identity and life story. Through the exploration of various art mediums and appropriate materials the artist develops an understanding of the art form that best releases artistic expression and vision. Art With a Purpose is directed by Nancy Herrington, who is a freelance artist and art educator. Her website is at

There are two morning sessions (10:00 – 1:00) remaining on November 14 and November 21.  The House Next Door is located at 173 Princeton-Hightstown Road in Princeton Junction. Parking for this event is located next door at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. Enter through the main door (on the left) and follow the signs to the The House Next Door.
