Student Art Auction
Students, due to the extended City of Houston’s Stay at Home mandate, Newspring is canceling the Student Art Auction Celebration on Friday, May 29th. We will be sending out your checks at the beginning of June. We can also make arrangements for on-site pickup through appointments. If you have filled out the participation form we have your mailing address but please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org CC email@example.com to verify your address. You can also leave a message at (713) 590-0100. Please keep in mind that we are working remotely and we will return your call ASAP.
The Newspring Student Art Auction featured selected works of art (drawings, paintings, photography and ceramics) by Spring Branch ISD secondary students. Originally planned as an event at the A.D. Players George Theater on the evening of April 24th, the 2020 Art Auction was ON-LINE to comply with social distancing and stay at home requirements.
Over 300 pieces were submitted, with the very best selected for the auction. Students receive 100% of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork. Today in the current environment of stay-at-home measures, this is an important way to support students who may have lost after-school jobs or whose families may be in distress.
Bradley’s Art and Frame and Framecrafters, who generously donated their services in prior years, were unable to provide framing due to the citywide closure of non-essential businesses. Both companies are offering 20% off framing services for Newspring artwork when their businesses reopen.

Thanks to all Newspring supporters and friends who came out for the 2019 Student Art Auction at the A.D. Players George Theater. Each student was so proud to show their artwork and visit with guests. $9,350 was raised from the art sales with all proceeds going directly to the students.
Highlights from Last Year
Newspring’s tenth annual Student Art Auction was held October 13 at the Forney Building. Sales totaled $7,000. As always, all sales proceeds go to the student artists. Over its ten year history, this event has provided over $140,000 in income to student artists.
