Visitors pause to admire the vivid colors of original abstract paintings on display. Families sprawl out in the grass while sharing bites of chocolate chicharrones. Burgeoning artists take the stage to sing their hearts out while the crowd listens and sips ales from local breweries such as Jackalope Brewing Company. Who would have thought that this relaxing afternoon is actually doing some hard work? The Made in Nashville event does more than just celebrate local Nashville artisans?it raises money for the Tennessee Literacy Coalition. The coalition provides resources and works with teachers to raise awareness of the state?s adult-literacy needs.
The Franklin location houses 11 indoor shooting lanes.
The pro shop stocks more than 50 rental firearms as well as ammunition in most calibers.
Everything Weapons' pro shop contains the things of gun enthusiasts' dreams?firearms, ammo, magazines, and rebuild kits, just to name a few. The staff helps customers browse this stock, which includes gear from brands such as Glock and Beretta. The facility also houses an indoor gun range, where instructors from Agape Tactical teach lessons in the proper handling of rifles, shotguns, and pistols.
Old World charm commingles with a contemporary vibe at Dabble Studio, where students gather with friends old and new to relax, unwind, and explore new skills. Elevated above the easels, an instructor doles out guidance as scenes?from impressionistic landscapes to abstract still lifes?unfold under flicking brushstrokes. With the company of fellow artists, and enjoying BYOB drinks or libations and snacks purchased in-house, students in this hands-on studio environment render their own interpretation of each class's theme, from a peacock's plume to a desert cactus, using studio-provided materials. The studio's Brentwood location also offers cooking classes equipped with all the cooking tools and ingredients for a tasty night of fun. This upscale studio is an ideal place to take a date, schedule a family reunion, or host a bachelorette party. Available classes include exotic cooking classes and painting classes, as well as combinations of the two, and supplies, materials, and instructions are provided.
Too much power has been given to first-grade art teachers. Or so the instructors and organizers of Paint Along Nashville think. On their website, these leaders of BYOB painting workshops encourage adults to "unleash [their] creative spirit from time to time," even if once, in an era before college-admissions exams included a finger-painting section, their elementary critique d'art "failed to recognize [their] 'Picasso potential.'"
During workshops, an encouraging instructor, a convivial group of fellow aspiring artists, and an uncorked bottle of vino foster creativity. In each workshop, groups paint the same template picture, which could be a landscape of an autumn afternoon or a still life of wine and cheese. As wine sloshes into glasses, and as brushes layer paint on canvases, students usually find themselves enjoying a BYOB evening and later taking home their creations.
