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. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

    3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

    4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

    5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
