  • Painting With A Twist's #PaintingWithAPurpose Fundraiser for Art 120 on January 14, 2017!

    With YOUR help we raised $500+ at this event! These participants painted away the afternoon with generous and sparkling smiles!

    Our friends at Painting With A Twist (PWAT) graciously offered to host a #PaintingWithAPurpose class benefiting our programs, after our Education Coordinator, Hannah Hahn, who also works at Painting With A Twist (PWAT) part time, told them about the fire that destroyed Art 120's facilities on Thanksgiving Day, 2016. On January 14th, the 3 hour class featured the painting pictured here, with a wintery twist on Vincent Van Gogh's famous style. So "Gogh" to their PWAT studio with a friend or your family and have a great time tapping into your creative side!

    We also have some gift certificates valued at $35.00, and if you want extra art to hang in your home, and you can choose from paintings donated by PWAT's owners! You can email edu@art120.org if you are interested in a gift certificate purchase or a particular piece of PWAT artwork benefiting Art 120 (the paintings' images can be found here).

  • Thanks Again Chattanooga! Art Cars Love You!

    Wow! What an amazing Art Car Weekend in Chattanooga! Once again local businesses, the city, and individuals stepped up to help us put on the best show yet while reaching just over 2,500 children in Hamilton County without an art program. Once all the data is collected for the entire weekend, we will share in next week's post. Until then, here are some wonderful photos before the ball. The Art Car Fire Ball was so amazing, we will have to post that separately next week.

  • A Tale of 2 Maker Faires and 1 Fire Tornado

    October was a busy month for our Urban Art Bikers. The kids from The Bethlehem Center attended Maker Faire Atlanta where they received a lot of positive feedback from thousands of attendees that stopped to try out their art bikes. The students also received three exhibit of merit awards for their creations. All in all, Atlanta’s Maker Faire had 30,000 people in attendance over the two day event.

    The following week, we were back in Chattanooga where kids from The Bethlehem Center and two of our Glass Street Students participated and shared their creations with a crowd of 2,200. Also on exhibit was Art 120’s first collaborative art piece with the community, Mr. Twister Fire Tornado. A big thanks to Siskin Steel for supplying all the metal and board member, Conrad Tengler for stepping up to the challenge along with artist Andrew Nigh, Mike Harrison, and Bryan Dyer. People really seemed to enjoy the sculpture and we will continue to work as a team to figure out our next steps with this really cool, bike powered piece.

    NEXT STOP: Mainx24!
