Students from the Pottsville, PA Empire Beauty School provided makeup and hairstyles for models in a bridal and prom fashion show during the Block of Art event in April.
Local community businesses hosted individual activities to support the Hillside SPCA. Empire Beauty School students Amber Lehman, Cassandra Carter and Patricia Tellup were just a few of the senior level students offering their expertise to the models walking the runway of the charity event show.
The 4th Annual Block of Art show is a three-day arts festival in downtown Pottsville with various performances, music and entertainment, live poetry, art exhibits, and workshops.
The grass roots event began with a few local businesses in the Schuylkill County town with the hopes of premiering and cultivating the arts for the entire community to enjoy as well as promote creativity. The event continues to grow each year with more community involvement from local stores, restaurants and other local participants.
