Infinity announces new Pearl City Clay House
JAMESTOWN — The Infinity Visual and Performing Arts Center is opening a new, community arts center for adults — the Pearl City Clay House.
The Pearl City Clay House will be a place to play with clay. It will be an arts community for everyone from novice crafters to artists with years of experience. Taking a class at Pearl City Clay House will also provide support for creative youth. A percentage of all Pearl City Clay House classes will go to support music and arts programming at the Infinity Visual and Performing Arts Center.
“For years, our community has asked when we’ll start an, ‘Infinity for Adults’, and Pearl City Clay House is a culmination of years of brainstorming and planning between myself, Debra Eck, and other community arts professionals to do just that,” said Shane Hawkins, Infinity Executive director. “While we had hoped to be opening in our physical location in June of 2020, COVID-19 has had a significant impact on that process, so we decided to launch Pearl City Clay House virtually with an online arts retreat in October. The retreat went very well, and we now have additional digital experiences happening in November and December including Virtual Blackout Meditation Classes with Deb and a ’12 Days of Holiday’ ornament-making event in December with a variety of local artists.”
To register for an upcoming Pearl City Clay House event or learn more about Pearl City Clay House, visit www.pearlcityclayhouse.org/programming. All new newsletter sign-ups in November will be placed in a drawing to win a free class in December. Among the classes being offered are blackout meditation, a 12 Days of Christmas Ornament event starting Dec. 4.
“Of course I am disappointed that we can’t open physical doors to the community yet, but while we wait, we have put together a series of virtual experiences for artists and crafters of all skill levels,” Eck said.
