Neighborhood Spotlight: Let’s talk about Clarendon

What makes Clarendon a Special Neighborhood in Arlington?

Tucked in between Courthouse and Virginia Square, Clarendon is the perfect neighborhood that blends urban walkability with the suburban areas near it. Clarendon has a strong retail corridor with The Crossing Clarendon, Whole Foods Market, numerous shops and restaurants and a great mix of office tenants and residential homes — truly a special urban environment. 

Although well known for its nightlife, Clarendon also has a lively day life that includes great shopping, dining, parks and many events, such as Clarendon Day which features food vendors, arts and crafts and kids activities; the Armed Forces Cycling Classic; Music by the Metro; and the Arlington Festival of the Arts. A hidden neighborhood gem, Rocky Run Park, covers two-acres, with a multi-use oval field, a basketball court and playgrounds. 

Clarendon offers many different housing options, including apartments, condominiums, townhouses and single-family homes. “Some weekends, I literally don’t step foot into my car… I will do my grocery shopping, meet friends for dinner, pick up a last minute gift and go to a park with my dog, Spencer — all within walking distance. Living in Clarendon is truly a special thing,” says Alyssa Cannon.

“Probing the highly imaginative, inspired mind of Teresa Oaxaca is not altogether unlike having a present-day conversation with an Old Master,” says Nashville Arts Magazine.

Here is an unusual opportunity to learn from this incredibly talented and accessible artist, at Art House 7’s two-day oil painting workshop in October. Teresa will give 2 portrait painting demonstrations for 3 hours each morning. Students will then be painting from a clothed live model. Teresa will offer individual critiques that focus on materials, techniques, process and artistic vision. You’ll get jazzed up about painting and become more confident about your abilities.

Art House 7, Two-Day Oil Painting Workshop with Teresa Oaxaca. Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. EDT $250.

Validating one’s emotions has the power to heal, transform, and empower. What Is Validation? Every human being has feelings. We all have emotions that change over time, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. The question isn’t whether we feel; it’s how we handle feelings once they arise.

Building strategies to understand emotions is essential to positive mental health, and validation is one effective skill to practice.

Emotional validation is the process of understanding, embracing, and actively listening to another person’s feelings (or your own).

Understanding someone’s emotions doesn’t necessarily mean you approve of how they are feeling or reacting to something. You can be supportive in acknowledging and validating an emotional experience without agreeing or diminishing it. Validation is a skill to learn and improve over time. It may take practice, but the effort is most certainly worth it. Emotional validation has the power to enhance interpersonal communication and foster strong relationships.
