Crafting at the Village Center for the Arts followed by quesadillas and hauraches at Momma's Tacos. Perfect day! Come visit the green and some of the amazing shops we have here.
It was a great night for the arts throughout the Northwest Corner on Saturday at the NWCT Arts Council Creative Awards event at the Warner Theatre in Torrington. There were 50 nominees, and they all deserved awards for the work they having done nourishing our souls and fueling our regional economy. A special congratulations to the honorees, Ash Royer (a visual artist in Thomaston), The Institute for American Indian Studies in Washington, KidsPlay Children's Museum in Torrington, Mental Health Connecticut’s Mending Art, Michelle Begley of the American Mural Project, and the Village Center for the Arts in New Milford!
Here are some photos from our Annual Rake & Bake Fall Day of Service! Teams of volunteers went to: The Children's Center of New Milford, Inc, Pratt Nature Center, and Village Center for the Arts to clean up the properties, remove debris, and even help put up a yurt! THANK YOU to our friends and business associates who also joined us for this special event!
Here are a few moments from the beginning of Village Center for the Arts's "Throw-A-Thon" event and fundraiser being held today.

The ceramic plate "Throw-A-Thon" is an effort to help their talented students showcase their work if chosen for the National K-12 Exhibit!

Please see VCA's Event page with more details on the event and how you can support them and their students here:

Congratulations to our intern Saumya for getting into her college of choice, University of Southern California (USC).
She is concentrating on creative technology and media arts.
She graduated NMHS in 2021 and started interning here while working on her portfolio.
This young lady is destine for wonderful things - so join me in congratulating her for getting into her college of choice.
While Saumya was interning she helped us with everything here at VCA.
She also made a few short films, and paintings, including sculpting a large clay octopus.
If that wasn't enough, she also taught "Coding for Girls" at the youth agency.
We are proud to have such a kind, driven, and capable young person here, and we know she is going to do great things!
Now she is off to California soon! Lets hype her up!
Good luck and enjoy yourself.
Don't forget me when your famous!
