ArtSLAM Returns
The City of Santa Clarita’s popular Thursdays@Newhall series returns to Old Town Newhall, on March 5, 2015.  Several new and returning events will be held on Thursday nights from March through October, including ArtSLAM with JAM Sessions on the first Thursdays from 6:00pm to 10:00pm.
Are you an artist wanting to show your work?We are looking for artists to show their work; all mediums of artwork are accepted and there are no themes to follow. Stipends will be given to all artists selected to participate. To find out more information about these opportunities, visit http://oldtownnewhall.com/thursdaysatnewhall/artslam/.Do you just want to play?

The ARTree will be there to help you show your creative side. Find our booth and join the fun.

Library Drop-In Classes: Past and Future

Bring art-loving kids, tweens and teens to our upcoming Old Town Newhall Library session on March 6th from 3 – 4:30. Drop-in and make beautiful leaf impressions, mounted and ready for display.

2014 -2015 City Arts Grant

The ARTree recently received the news that the City of Santa Clarita will fund an arts grant that we submitted last fall. The project, In Celebration of Children’s Art, will create five eight foot by four foot panels, each depicting a self portrait of a child. The completed steel panels will be installed in the area of Todd Longshore park located at the top of Whites Canyon Road.

The grant will fund the materials as well as the installation of the five works but the dedicated ARTree artists and volunteers will be teaching workshops at local elementary schools and assisting children as they add their self portraits to the panels.

Doing What We Love

Our ARTree classes for ages 8-12 continue to run at full capacity, with a waiting list! The Winter Activities Center Watercolor class brought many eager and talented young people; and a big thank you goes to Michael Powell for his skills as a teacher, and artist.

The next session, again held at the Activities Center, begins on March 26th for 6 weeks. Sign ups through Seasons magazine, begin February 17th. The theme is 3-dimentional art.

What makes ARTree classes different from the others?
ARTree is Santa Clarita’s only non-profit organization providing low-cost, multi-week classes to our community, run completely by artists dedicating their time and talents.
Program fees we collect help fund broader community public art projects, supports our free lecture series, and helps pay for administrative costs.
Our “Sampler” classes, where kids can explore art in many forms, allow participants to sample mediums and methods to find their passion in the arts. We also offer single subject courses for more in-depth genre mastery.

A Model to Consider:
Bell Arts’ Success Story

Art classes for kids, a community center, artist’s work and exhibition space, and much, much more. Bell Arts Factory is fully integrated into the Ventura arts community and the neighborhood that surrounds it. Learn how it got started, where nine years of growth have taken it, and what it might mean for The ARTree and our work.

Thursday, February 26, 2015 – 6:30pm – Old Town Newhall Library

No charge for admission, your support always welcome.
