Arts, Crafts, Music, and Walking this Week

teabagsNew on our class list at the Recreation Center are arts & crafts classes for ADULTS! Gillian and Sylvia are both wonderful and busy instructors who have agreed to teach. In October we have a Watercolor and Tea in the Afternoon course along with a Craft series of 3 arts that prepare you for the holiday gift season. Gillian is a talented metalsmith featured at the High Museum and will teach Jewelry making, Paper sculpting, and Book making. Sylvia directs an entire studio gallery of artists and will offer the watercolor along with the chance to sip tea, learn about new flavors, all set to music. Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful studio experience?

Come and see for yourself and free your inner artist in an adult-only setting during the day.

Walk With A DocMusic wise, we hope to find an instructor to offer music therapy so if you have any leads send them our way; and in the meantime we will pop into the square downtown this week at noon on Wednesday for the last Blue Sky Concert series of September. Note, our regular weekly Walk With a Doc will depart at 11am and end at the square at ~12pm for the concert. Leading us this week is Melissa Bloom, PT, DPT, NCS whose specialty is vertigo/balance/dizziness issues and who comes to us from PhysioCorp as a Neurologic Physical Therapist.

The playbook of ALL our classes and programs is online, take a look and find what interests you!

Walk With A Doc

Wednesday is Car Free Day in Decatur

Decatur Active Living encourages you to celebrate Car Free Day tomorrow, Wednesday September 18 . Leave your car at home and take a walk, bike ride or public transportation.  Join us on the Square at noon for the Blue Sky Concert and get a special Car Free Sticker or tattoo. 


Things to Do at Car Free Day Tomorrow

Decatur Active Living will be celebrating Car Free Day in Decatur tomorrow during the Blue Sky Concert on the Square from noon until 1 pm. Walk or bike to the Concert and we will award you with a special sticker or a tattoo. We will also have information on walking and biking and a few other little surprises!

Decatur Police will be joining us and giving Decaturites the opportunity to register their bikes. Why register your  bike? In the event that your bike is lost or stolen, it can be easily identified once it is recovered and you shall have it returned to you. Sounds good, yes?

The Claen Air Campaign's Smog Balloon

The Clean Air Campaign is bringing their “smog balloon” that shows how much exhaust is saved when you use your feet or bike instead of your car for both short and long trips. Click here if you would like to see how Parisians have used a balloon to tell their citizens if they are breathing smog!

Listen to music by Von Grey!

Now, who can work on the weather for us?
