100% of all proceeds from the sale of these paintings will be donated to the Underwood Foundation.
Although it is better than last year, the 2021–2022 school year is presenting all of us with another set of challenges. We need to continue to ensure that Underwood’s programming remains strong and that our students and staff are supported.
Your purchase of an original painting of Underwood helps the Foundation sustain our school directly in ways the PTA can't. The Foundation provides salaries for staff our children would not otherwise benefit from, due to a lack of state and local funding.
If we're unable to maintain all staff positions, Underwood will have larger class sizes, fewer elective offerings, and less instructional support. Your painting purchase helps to ensure that our school is able to continue to offer excellent instruction in both academics and the arts.
These woodblock paintings are acrylic on (mostly reclaimed) wood and measure 7.25”(h) x 9”(w) x 1.5”(d). You can hang your painting on the wall or display it on a shelf.
Each original woodblock painting is unique but similar. For an additional $25, you can add your child’s first name and “Class of _______” to the right end of the woodblock. Alternately, you can add a thank-you to your favorite teacher, e.g., “Thank you, Ms. Smith!” The left end of the woodblock features “Underwood, Five Points.” Please see photos in this listing for examples of how the text on the sides of these pieces will be painted.
"Class of..." Cheatsheet:
Current kindergartener: Class of 2027
Current 1st grader: Class of 2026
Current 2nd grader: Class of 2025
Current 3rd grader: Class of 2024
Current 4th grader: Class of 2023
Current 5th grader: Class of 2022
Use the "Add your personalization (optional)" field toward the top of this column to provide us with the text you'd like on the right end of your woodblock painting.

What a special memento of our son's 5th birthday party at the Rialto! We love it. It was exactly what we envisioned, was done super fast and was even hand-delivered to our door. Who can ask for more?! So happy to support this local business during these crazy times, and hope we can encourage others to do the same. Thanks again, Elizabeth!
Great painting and excellent customer service!! A++++
Love it so much! Can’t wait to give it my husband for his birthday!
