Art With a Purpose is a 12-week donation-based art program starting at 6:30 PM on Tuesday September 12th 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 http://nancyherrington.us/.
This program is offered to people of all ages in the surrounding communities. A responsible adult must accompany participants under the age of 18. Art With a Purpose will be offered each week on a Tuesday, alternating between evening sessions (6:30 – 9:00) and morning sessions (10:00 – 1:00). 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. No advance signup is required. Art With a Purpose gratefully accepts donations of art materials -- especially high quality paintbrushes, easels, acrylic or water based paint, canvas and appropriate papers.
We welcome all who wish to explore all aspects of spirituality, meditation and personal growth. Contact Nancy Herrington at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions concerning the program or wish to donate art materials.
