We are excited to announce the National arts Program is launching a new website. Please be patient with us for the next few hours during this transition while user access has been disabled. Don't worry all your great artwork will still be available in the new site!

Some of the great new features of the site include:

  • Overall enhanced user experience
  • More intuitive registration forms
  • More intuitive artist profile and artwork management features

Once the new site is live existing users will need to reset their password for security reasons. Once the new site is live check your email for the password message and follow the instructions in that email. If you don’t see the message, check your spam folder. You can always reset your password from the login screen as well.

Executive Director

I have been working directly for the foundation since 2001 and was named the Executive Director in 2009. I bring twenty years of outside experience in the marketing and advertising industry to the NAP.  

Director of Operations

I attended York College of Pennsylvania, where I majored in Graphic Design, minored in both Fine Art and Art History and graduated with honors. In 2007, after a successful career in event planning, I rekindled my passion for the arts and joined the National Arts Program Foundation.

Staff Picks

Ria Redifer

Jackie's Pick

I chose this piece for a number of reasons. The first being that I am a big watercolor fan and always have been. The artist, Ria Redifer, painted images to capture those moments that can never be defined, rather can only be hinted at. It is the reason why this painting is one of my favorite. The red coat of the rower stands out among the greenery in the background. The rower could be in a large boat, or it could be smaller, the shape is implied. The paddle is gliding through the water and just about to be lifted or is it being used to turn the boat, not really sure.

Maren's Pick

The painting pictured was created by my energetic three-year old and presented to me as a gift on my last birthday. This colorful creation is prominently displayed in the kitchen right now. Although our hectic daily routines often leave little free time, I try to incorporate a creative session with the kids whenever possible.
