Why is the room - and that vase - spinning?

New on the Indianapolis Art Center lineup of classes: Clay & Cocktails, a series of Friday night classes at which participants can get their drink on while going hands-on at the pottery wheel.

It's an effort to appeal to the ever-so-attractive younger (but not below-legal-drinking-age young) demo. More info on the classes here.

So do you think this will appeal? And what are some other ideas you can think of for arts organization to attract those coveted and elusive young professionals?

Your thoughts?

Oh, and remember, friends don't let friends spin drunk.

  • love it!
    I love this idea! As a young professional living in Indianapolis, I enjoy taking advantage of all the special programming nonprofits all over the city have started offering. The ISO may have the biggest event around in Happy Hour, but the IRT, Eiteljorg, WFYI and others have stepped up to the plate as well. It's nice to have a reason to check out an organization and get involved. Good work, Indy arts!
  • May Not Be Legal
    The venues mentioned by Lauren have either an on-premise license or use licensed caterers. The Art Center staff should make sure serving spirits there is legal. May need either an on-premise permit or use a caterer with a permit. Can't imagine a pottery class would be worth doing that, whereas the other events are big enough to do so.

    • The Art Center's Legal
      Thanks for your comment about permits. The Art Center serves wine at this sampler pottery class and makes sure it's in compliance with laws regarding serving alcohol.
    • SIgn me up!
      I think this is a great idea. I will definitely try out a class!

    1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

    2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

    3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

    4. Send them back NOW.

    5. deport now
