Community Art Day is now postponed to August 9th 

Join us for our August Community Art Day! 

Pelham Art Center teachers will be present in the Pelham Art Center Courtyard at 155 Fifth Avenue doing live painting demos.  Come speak with an artist, watch an artist create, and participate in our collaborative community art project Pelham Art Rocks!


Pelham Art Rocks!

Part of the upcoming Community Art Days is “Pelham Art Rocks!”–a collaborative public art installation consisting of individual rocks painted by our community members. Come take a rock, paint a rock, and leave a rock under the Pelham Art Center red arch! Visitors can create a rock during any of the three Community Art Days, or paint their rock at home and return it under the arch later. Pelham Art Center invites everyone to contribute a colorful design to build an Art Rock Garden as a tribute to the strength and beauty of our community.

For those painting from home, suggested paints are acrylic and details can be added using paint markers. Consider mandala rocks, patterned rocks, inspirational words, spirals, shapes and patterns for your design. It is recommended to add a top coat clear acrylic sealer on top of your painted rocks.



*Pelham Art Center asks that visitors keep physically distant from the artist(s) in the courtyard but encourages you to observe, enjoy and ask questions! Disposable materials will be provided on site to participate in Pelham Art Rocks, or visitors are welcome to paint their rock from home and return it to the arch at their convenience.



Community Art Days are supported with grant funds from the Junior League of Pelham
