    How much does the paint and sip class cost?

  3. Jennifer Kromer says:

    I’m interested in the Paint and Sip class for the Eiffel Tower. My mother was just at a class last week and said it’s booked for the next 2 months for that specific class. Can you tell me if the schedule has been made for June or July for the Eiffel Tower painting? Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jennifer

      Hi Jennifer. Our June & July schedule has not yet been confirmed. Keep checking the schedule & our FB page. Most classes are held Tues. & Wed. nights. I try to offer 1 Friday in a month. The classes have been most popular!

    The Tamaqua Community Theatre is looking for local writers to supply short stories that can be “Short Plays” to be performed in our Short Play Festival. 10 to 20 minutes. Any genre. Preferably smaller casts. You can submit more than one. If your story is used your compensation will be one free ticket to your show, an additional ticket to one other show during the festival, a video of the show, and an opportunity to see your work staged by us.
    If interested, please email scripts to:
    Deadline is April 30.

    Any thoughts or plans of a bus trip to see this exhibit?
    Please let me know. Thank You
    Winterthur near Philadelphia will be displaying the Costumes of
    Downton Abbey from March 1, 2014–January 4, 2015
    See website for details

    Costumes of Downton Abbey is an original exhibition of exquisite designs from the award-winning television series. Forty historically inspired costumes from the television show will be displayed and supplemented by photographs and vignettes inspired by the fictional program and by real life at Winterthur.

    Visitors will have a chance to step into and experience the world of Downton Abbey® and the contrasting world of Winterthur founder Henry Francis du Pont and his contemporaries in the first half of the 20th century.

      Unfortunately at this time we are not running bus trips. We are in need of a volunteer who has the time to organize trips to various locations (art museum, NY city shows, & other locations). This is an excellent idea. Anyone interested in helping to organize trips can contact Leona Rega @ 570-668-1192 or Leona@tacp.info

    Hi….I’m writing to inquire if there is a need or desire in the Tamaqua area for a “Writer’s Group” or a “Writer’s Workshop” I see that there is a “young” writer’s group, but I’m trying to see if there are more adults who would participat in an ongoing workshop group. I would host or co-host if there is someone else out there who might be interested in sitting down and discussing such a project. I’ve been involved in other writing groups before, so I do have some experience.
    Typically, the group gets together, discusses what everyone is interested in when it comes to writing. A topic is settled upon and we are all “assigned” a writing project which we will complete and share with the group on the following meeting…..usually every two weeks.
    The “sharing” aspect is to help people feel more comfortable discussing their work in a constructive and positive environment. At the end of a “session”, which may be 6-8 weeks, each person could pick two or three of their favorite pieces of writing and we could compile a “book” of sorts that everyone could take home with them.
    I myself, do not have a “website”, but my email address is available and anyone interested, please feel free to let me know your ideas.
    My address is as follows: mikerimm@gmail.com

    • Leona M. Rega says:

      Michael – currently the Art Center does not have an adult writer’s group. The Black Diamond Writers Network will be hosting a workshop at the Art Center on Feb. 19th 6:30-7:30pm called “Writing for Pleasure or Profit.”

      If you would like to discuss your thoughts and ideas further, please feel free to e-mail me @ leona@tacp.info and we can schedule a time to meet.
