Express Yourself 2018 #FrameOfMind



Our final Express Yourself 2018 #FrameOfMind post highlights two framers, Andrea’s Frame It Yourself and The Framed Image in Pompton Plains. Without all of our wonderful framers, we would be unable to showcase all the beautiful masterpieces at our Express Yourself events. On behalf of all of our Young Artists, we thank you so very much for your generosity. #ArtWorksKids

Thank You- Express Yourself 2018!

Thank you to everyone who attended Express Yourself 2018 this past Sunday and made it a roaring success! Over 100 artworks were exhibited in our gallery and the performance showcase featured 15 performances each with distinct meaning and emotion. It was an honor to celebrate the amazing talent and spirit of all the Young Artists and over 150 guests! ArtWorks is humbled and grateful for the support of our sponsors and especially our framers who donated their resources and time to turn each artwork into a masterpiece and keepsake for our Young Artists. We truly could not do this without them. We would also like to thank all of the fantastic volunteers who spent their day making sure our event ran smoothly and our Teaching Artists who hosted our wonderful workshops! Be sure to visit our Facebook Event Album for more photos from the event! #ExpressYourself2018 #ArtWorksKids
