Lunch with the Arts: Young at Heart Band
Wednesday, December 19| 12pm to 1pm
$5 at the door ($3 for students)

Join us for what has quickly become a favorite annual event at the Community Arts Center – a holiday performance by the Young at Heart Band. This lively group performs their own brand of swing music from the 1940s era. They may be called young at heart, but here is the kicker – the band members’ average age is 80 years and counting.  That doesn’t prevent them, however, from raising the roof when it comes to their music.

Sign language is available for this event. Please contact the Community Arts Center by December 17th to request interpretation services.

Big thanks to our sponsors – Morning Pointe of DanvilleStuart Powell Ford Lincoln Mazda and Direct Experience in Artistic Living, Inc. – for supporting this event!!

Inspired by the popularity of last year’s mixed-media nativity, this year we’re excited to offer a mixed-media Christmas tree class! We’ll up-cycle pages from old books into a three-dimensional work of art, building off of a 16″ x 20″ canvas.  Use our beads to create unique ornaments – or bring in discarded costume jewelry of your own!
