This year Arlington Arts Center is extending our summer camps program and offering ten weeks of camps from June 22 to August 28!

We offer weekly art camps for children and teens ages 5 to 18. Campers have the opportunity to choose from morning and afternoon sessions with full and extended day options available all summer long.

AAC’s experienced instructors will take our younger campers on an artistic journey in our Fantasy Forests and Art Trekkers classes. Older campers will have a chance to write and illustrate their own adventures in our Comic Book Composition classes, and our teen students will hone their technical skills in our Fundamentals of Drawing and Painting classes. This year our Stretch Your Imagination campers will visit our summer exhibitions and create their own projects inspired by the artwork on view in our galleries. These projects will be featured in our student exhibition at the end of the summer.

Each season, Bowen McCauley Dance Company (BMDC) produces the MOVE ME Festival in partnership with Kenmore Middle School. The annual gathering brings together local artists and dance companies to share their art through interactive workshops and performances on two stages. We open our doors to kids of all ages and their families for an afternoon of indoor fun, dance, music, face painting, balloonists, prizes and a few surprises from the main stage.

The Festival is FREE and there is something for everyone from traditional ballet, hip-hop to hula, yoga — it’s all here at the MOVE ME Festival. Kenmore M.S. has plenty of free parking and is accessible by public transportation.

Take advantage of the extra day in February and be sure to visit the main stage for a culminating performance between the Kenmore M.S. student dance residency and BMDC’s professional Company dancers!

Cody Chance and Dick Nathan of Long & Foster are hosting a workshop on the topic of “down-sizing” at their office on Lee Highway in Arlington on Tuesday, February 11 from 5-7 p.m., with an additional date on Tuesday, February 25.

Every great endeavor begins with a great plan. This workshop will give you the tools to design your plan. We have created a workbook with an extensive planning guide to enable you to design a personalized written plan for your move, and more than twenty pages of resources specific to Northern Virginia to help you along the way! These resources will help you to find the best people to assist you in your move, and help you get the belongings that won’t move with you into the hands of people who will value them.

The workshop format is a “guided group discussion” of the workbook, with a chance for the participants to ask their own questions, and special guest presenter Alexandra Fry of Orchestrated Moves will be joining us to share her many years of expertise in organization and moving.

We will be discussing three major themes:

The Arlington Players (TAP) is proudly presenting the Agatha Christie play A Daughter’s a Daughter, which follows widowed Ann and her only daughter, Sarah, through their intense relationship of jealousy, sacrifice and resentment.

TAP productions like this are produced and presented completely by community volunteers (they’re your neighbors, friends and colleagues!). Actors, directors, set painters, costumers and more sacrifice their evening and weekends, time with their friends and families, for the good of their passion.

A Daughter’s A Daughter was the fifth novel published under Christie’s pseudonym Mary Westmacott. Westmacott novels deviated from the crime and murder genre Christie is best known for, and this story is no different.

Join us at Cody Gallery at Marymount University on Friday, January 17 from 6-8 p.m. to celebrate the opening of “Jennie Lea Knight: Women of Jefferson Place“! This exhibition includes a body of sculpture by Jennie Lea Knight that is best described as minimal in form, but not in process. At times stretching up to 9 feet in length, these wood sculptures show a mastery of precision in joinery and shaping coupled with a fastidiousness of craft.

Jennie Lea Knight was born in Washington, D.C. in 1933 and passed away in 2007. She received her art training in design and music at King-Smith School of Creative Arts and later graduated from the Institute of Contemporary Arts in 1951, where she studied painting with Kenneth Noland. By 1964, Knight worked almost entirely in sculpture, working occasionally on paper and canvas. Knight’s work can be found in many private collections and public institutions including D.C.’s Smithsonian American Art Museum and Phillips Collection.

This exhibition is the third in the series “Women of Jefferson Place Gallery” organized by John Anderson, independent curator and writer, Meaghan Kent, Curator of Exhibitions, Art and Culture Center/Hollywood, Florida and Caitlin Berry, Director of Cody Gallery. Previous exhibitions in this series include “Hilda Shapiro Thorpe” and “Mary Orwen“.
