Artown Adventure continues

The Artown adventure continues this month, and we have gotten our tiles back from the Clay Canvas.  They turned out pretty good considering that we had limited paint to choose from and paint brushes that would make an artist like me grumpy.  My husband and I are contemplating doing another set of tiles or perhaps just going back to do some of the other projects that they regularly offer all year around.  We also showed up for the snow globe project and have to wait to see how those will turn out.

Tiles turned out great even with a limited pallet.

Reno Little Theater stage setting before the show started and before they had the lighting problem.

Yesterday a group of us attended “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” at the Reno Little Theater and enjoyed it very much despite the difficulties with the lighting system.  The performers handled the problem so well that one barely noticed the fact that they had to keep the normal room lights on during the performance.  The theater offered us a chance to come back for free and see it again, and we definitely want to do that.  Great performers and very funny.  It will keep you on your toes and no falling asleep at this performance!

Tonight several of us are going to take advantage of the Monday Night Music Series at the Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater at Bartley Ranch Park.  We did this two years ago and totally enjoyed every performance.  These performers spend a lot time to be ready for these and every single moment should be enjoyed – which is a big hint – don’t get up and leave before the finale.  It’s rude.

Also bring a blanket to sit upon just in case the seating is full or if you find the chairs bit uncomfortable.  Sometimes they have vendors with food or you can bring a picnic basket dinner from home.  It should be a good time.

Here’s a link to investigate the events.
