The Newton Art Association seeks to encourage the appreciation and expression of fine arts to our membership and the Newton community. We are an organization of over 200 active artists and art enthusiasts, representing all branches of the visual arts, from drawing to sculpture. The majority of members live in Newton, nearby cities, and elsewhere in New England. The Newton Art Association, was founded in 1949 by the late James King Bonnar and a small group of artists who felt that artists needed the support of each other to share ideas, techniques and opportunities to paint together.
Outstanding New England artists demonstrate their techniques at free NAA programs on the second Thursdays of the month, September through May. The NAA also organizes critiques, lectures, workshops and exhibits for members throughout the year. Each year the NAA awards scholarships to high school seniors who live or attend school in Newton. The Newton Art Association is a 501 (C)(3)tax-exempt, nonprofit arts organization: 04-2671354.Learn more:
