Bet Shira Early Childhood Center recently celebrated 20 years of creating with children with a Roaring 20s-themed Kids Art Auction.
This annual fundraiser featured individual and class art created by the school’s children ranging from 18 months to six years old. Under the artistic guidance of local artist Deborah Blank, the students worked together to create ceramic and mixed media pieces and Judaic art that was sold at the evening’s live auction.
Also featured were more than 800 professional portraits of the school and children. Donated by Marta Villalba Photography for the past seven years, these stunning photographs have become a centerpiece of the event.
“One of the highlights of the year is to see how she captures the beauty of every child,” said ECC director Dr. Judi Gampel.
This year’s event was attended by More than 200 patrons in support of the school and it’s programs. This year’s 20th Anniversary Kids Art Auction was chaired by PTA members Amy Jellson, Staci Kaplan and Jenny Kandell.
