Students share talent with Pizza Shack
Beginning June 26th, 2009, Newark’s new Pizza Shack will display paintings depicting the village’s history. The collection of five paintings, depicting local scenes as they appeared in 1968, will be on permanent display. This was a great opportunity for Newark art students to be involved with the history of the community, experience civic pride and learn about the experiences of creating artwork in a situation where the artwork has been commissioned. It was a chance for them to be generous with their skills and give a great gift to the community of Newark at a place for casual and everyday encounters. View Paintings

A Collaborative Mural for the Community
We have recently completed a large-scale collaborative service learning project; a permanent mural painted by five students entitled “Celebrating Newark throughout the Ages.” This project was quite an achievement because it heightened students' skills in art communication and their ability to work with community boards, outside experts, and dignitaries, moving them from solo artists into communal artists, participants and leaders within their community. read more
