A November to remember
Lots of fun and excitement coming this month.
We start the month with First Friday on Nov 4. Come one out for Marta's wonderful hors d'oeuvres, wine and punch. Enjoy the company of other art aficionados, all for free. Don't forget to stop off and visit our friends at Gallery 'N' Gifts at 100 W. Tehachapi Blvd., they participate, too.
Nov. 8 is Jam Night at the Art Center. Grab your favorite instrument and come on out and have some fun. If you don't have one, we have a few on hand and we can always use a vocalist. Set up starts at 5 p.m. but you are welcome anytime till we stop playing. Bring some songs and don't forget to enter from the Stage (Back) door. You don't have to be an accomplished musician.
This is for the aspiring as well as the more seasoned musician.
Fiber Frogs will be meeting here on Nov. 8 at 10 a.m. for their weekly get together. This is a group interested in fabric art. Quilts, crotchet, macramé, knitting, needle point ... if it involves fabric, you'll fit right in. So come on out and meet other people who enjoy your hobby.
On Nov. 12 we have our long-awaited Watercolor Workshop with our own Nancy Waldron. Working in watercolor is a little different then oil and acrylic mediums. Brushes are important.
Nancy asks that you bring your own brushes if you have them. She will have some on hand for those who don't. You will be using #8 and #4 round brushes. If you need more information, give us a call.
Also on Nov. 12 is the return of our Improv Workshop with Susan and Johnathon Hall.
From my own experience I can tell you that it is a fun event where you will feel welcome.
The leaders will conduct exercises that will work your brain and allow you to express yourself in diverse and sundry ways. It's challenging in a fun and encouraging environment.
Nov. 19 is another busy day.
First we have Cathy Clark's Polymer Clay Class which will be making lovely Snowman ornaments. These will make great one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts, hang them on your own tree or decorate a nice gift. There is only room for six people, so sign up early.
Then in the evening we'll have our November Paint Night with Edward Vasqkedi. Yes, we have wine, soda and snacks, but Ed is here to teach and he does an exemplary job. This month's subject is a nice outdoor scene with a cute little bird. One of my favorites in Ed's portfolio.
Children's Art Class is every Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. We can also offer a private class for birthdays or for your own group of friends. Call Grayson for more information.
It's almost that time of year. Our Jewelry Store is ready to design and produce that exceptional gift for that special person. But don't put off making that appointment. One of the best things about our shop is that these are one-of-a-kind, custom made here in Tehachapi pieces. They're as unique as you want them to be but, you need to give the jeweler time to create that memorable gift. We are also busy replacing watch batteries, re-sizing rings and repairing all types of jewelry. Mike's Jeweler hours are noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment. Call or text (661) 805-0849 for more information.
The Tehachapi Arts Center (TAC) is a cooperative continuing in the tradition of Mel White's Treasure Trove. TAC provides a venue for local artisans to gather, learn, teach, display, and sell their art. We are located at 116 E. Tehachapi Blvd. (across the street from the water tower). TAC is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can reach us at: (661) 822-6794.
