Has your summer been busy, relaxed, or a mixture? This is often a good time
to recharge and make future plans; here are a couple of ideas that can take
you down different creative paths.
If you haven't been to
Earth, Glaze & Fire lately, it's time! The mother-and-
daughter team of Danielle and Nadia Schwarz, who both worked at the shop
for several years, became the new owners as of June 1 and relocated the
business across Main Street in the former Piccadilly store. The new location
is bright and open, offering plenty of seating--there's even outdoor seating
for six!--and the perfect artistic ambiance.
While summer camps have of course been a focal point of late, you can still drop
by to paint your own pottery during regular business hours. Reservations are
only needed for groups of six or more people. If you'd like to try your hand with
clay, beginning and intermediate classes are starting up again soon, covering
hand-building, wheel-thrown pottery, and glazing. And canvas painting classes
continue to be popular--they're great for parties!
Nadia's favorite activity is working with children participating in therapeutic
painting classes. "It's a terrifi c creative outlet," she says. "It helps them see
what they're capable of doing." She adds that the studio will soon offer a host
of retail products, including paints, brushes, and other art supplies. To learn
more, call
(540) 878-5701.
If you prefer the performing arts vs. visual arts, consider taking up classes at
Ballet Academy of Warrenton, which offers instruction in ballet, tap, jazz,
and modern dance, as well as acrobatics. Assistant director Melissa Yowell
notes that contemporary dance classes will be added to the schedule this year
as well and taught by Miss Sara, who joined the staff last year.
Melissa points out that additional performance opportunities complement the
instructional classes. Besides the annual end-of-year concert, the academy
has added a winter showcase, and while the company of teenage girls who put
on the Fairytale Tea each November continues, a junior company for dancers
ages 812 was recently launched. Company and junior company members
need to adhere to certain requirements; for example, company dancers must
take classes in ballet and either jazz, modern, or contemporary.
Ballet Academy of Warrenton dancers spend quite a bit of time in the studio,
but they're just as dedicated to service out in the community. Melissa notes
that they take joy in visiting and performing at local nursing homes as often as
their schedules permit. To learn more, call
(540) 347-4011.
