Annual Student Art Show - Cancelled due to COVID-19, we will see you next year!

Each spring, the Arts Council supports local art teachers in preparing and displaying student artwork at the New Prague Library. The 2020 Early Learning, Elementary and High School  Pop-Up Art Show scheduled to run from April 20-30 with an Opening Reception on April 23 from 5-6:30pm was cancelled due to the COVID-19 stay at home order. Hopefully in 2021 we will be back in person at which time you are invited to come out and see the amazing pieces our students create and let your child participate in a fun art project.

This is the Arts Council’s main fundraising event. The Arts Council uses these funds to pay for their other events and as matching funds for arts grants.  The New Prague Arts Council is pleased to announce that this year's sponsor is Brusseau Investments. Their sponsorship is very much appreciated and helps defray the cost of the hosting the event so that all funds raised can go directly to supporting community arts.
