The Meadowbrook School in Abington will hold its annual Winter Arts Festival, a family-friendly arts event, on Saturday, Jan. 25 and Sunday, Jan. 26 at the elementary school. 

The event, which is open to the public, will feature more than 1,000 pieces of art by Meadowbrook students from preschool through sixth grade. The artwork will be on display in both the Shuttleworth Gym and the Goldsmith Greenfield Art Gallery.

Meadowbrook art teacher Jillian Katona organized the exhibit, which will include an array of artwork in several media.

Katona, who has taught art for more than 20 years, said, "Our Meadowbrook Winter Arts Festival is designed to be kid-friendly. It is the perfect venue for families who want to expose their young children to the arts, as well as inspire their imaginations and inner creativity."

A special exhibit featuring the work of renowned oil painter Alan Fetterman, will also be on display. Fetterman is a Bucks County painter and will be a guest speaker at the school in spring. 

The Winter Arts Festival will be open today from 1 to 4 p.m. and Sunday, from 1 to 3 p.m. 

The Meadowbrook School is located at 1641 Hampton Road, Meadowbrook.

Jillian Katona is an amazing art teacher! The best! We were lucky to be part of the Meadowbrook family, and still have art on our walls at home that my son made in Jillian's classes - A Modigliani self portrait and an African face mask are only two of the many great pieces my son created under Jillian's direction at Meadowbrook. If you aren't a Meadowbrook family, Jillian may still present summer art camps that are great!
