Newton Art Association, September 2019
The Newton Art Association, founded in 1949 by the late James King Bonnar and a small group of artists, seeks to encourage the expression of fine arts in the Newton community. Outstanding New England artists demonstrate their techniques at free NAA programs on the second Thursdays of the month, September through May at the Newton Senior Center in Newtonville. The NAA also organizes critiques, lectures, workshops and exhibits for members throughout the year. Each spring they award $3,000 in scholarships to qualifying high school seniors living or attending high school in Newton. Visit NAA online. (Image by: Steinsieck)
