News & Updates

Meet our Newest Instructor!

Hello all!  My name is Anna Martin and I am excited to join the Uptown Painting Party family!  Getting to do the thing I love to do most in the world…paint!

annaTo say a few things about myself; I am a local girl who has lived in Somerset County her whole life.  I love art and anything that has to do with art. In the past, I have been a substitute art teacher, gave private lessons, and painted at conferences.  I have been painting for longer than I can remember and growing up, I attended art classes at GTDP, Art Seeds, and learned many things from my mom, who is also a local artis, Penny Neimiller.

I love my family and my kids! (That’s why I have 3!) They are amazing! I am learning something new all the time.  For example, saying things like, “you shouldn’t put cheese in an outlet” (You know, mommy stuff!)  I also have a wonderful and very supportive husband, Paul.

I can’t wait to meet all you fabulous people and share fun times together.

Uptown Painting pARTy Hosting FUNdraiser for the Pinkerton Tunnel Project!

 Please join us as we host a FUNdraiser to help raise money to open the Pinkerton Tunnel!

gap-logosmaller“Great Allegheny Passage currently takes a 1.5 mile detour around a deteriorated railroad tunnel, near mile 52 in Somerset County. Besides shortening the distance, fixing the tunnel will create another spectacular feature along the trail. Located between the Pinkerton Low and High Bridges, the “bridge-tunnel-bridge” in quick succession will be a marvel. It will also make a great way to create a loop ride, using the tunnel and the detour trail.”

Meet Our New Assistant!

We are so happy to have Alberto help us during events!  We wanted to introduce you to him officially, even though many of you have met him once or twice at our pARTies!

albertoHi, my name is Alberto VanHecke and I thrilled to be an art instructor assistant at Uptown Painting pARTy!

I grew up in Southern Wisconsin, in a town by the name of Watertown. I moved to Pennsylvania in November of 2013, and currently reside in Rockwood, PA with my loving girlfriend Tia.

While I have had no formal art education I have a had a fair amount of art experience. I enjoy various forms of art, however my true passion is in digital art, mostly focusing on photography, cinematography, and video editing. I have published photography for newspapers, record companies, local business, and others. Science and nature are my two most constant sources of inspiration.
Check out our Video!

Want to see for yourself what Uptown Painting pARTy is all about?  Check out this really cool video produced by Alberto VanHecke, our Artist Assistant!  Thanks Alberto for filming this at the Hopeful Hearts FUNdraiser on July 24, 2014!

July 23, 2014- FUNdraiser for Hopeful Hearts Charity

We had SO MUCH FUN at the FUNdraiser for Hopeful Hearts charity!  We were able to raise $350 by pARTiers just coming to paint and pARTy with us!

Spearheaded by Ms. Christy Berzonski, she is doing wonderful things for families who have been stricken by cancer and financially burdened by the incredibly high medical costs that can be associated with the diagnosis.  We pray Christy can continue to do wonderful things for families and are so happy that our FUNdraiser was able to help her form her nonprofit.  If you would like to find out more information and how to help contribute to her cause, please visit her Facebook page by clicking here!
