Spearheaded by Julia Richey, a former member of the Russian National Team, the crew of coaches at Royal Arts Fencing Academy teaches fencers of all experience levels the secrets of centuries-old sword techniques and traditions.

They can also brush up on their blade knowledge during summer camps that cover the Olympic sport weapons of foil, épée, and saber.

See You Thursday is a winsome Chicago-style troupe of quick-witted improv artists highly experienced at taking the squishy gray clay of the everyday and whittling it into hilarious pieces of glazed and kilned laughter-vases. Over the course of an hour, SYT will perform a wide array of characters subject to audience-suggested themes without a single page of script paper, as everything said and done is an invention of the moment thanks to off-the-cuff comedic wizardry from fast minds and a shared telepathic improvisational energy shared between all of the company members.

Hosted by the Columbus Museum of Art's Women's Board, the biennial Decorators' Show House showcases decorous designs from some of the region's premier interior and landscape designers. Originally constructed in 1928, the spacious Spanish-revival-style house sits on a large corner lot overlooking the Scioto River and emits feng shui-ed flashes of inspiration with 22 design spaces, 19 interior and 3 exterior, as well as four landscaped areas, including the world's first sentient, self-skimming lap pool. Attendees can purchase light snacks and lunch fare at the café or raffle tickets for a chance to win prizes, such as a case of wine or a cooking class at Williams-Sonoma, with all proceeds from the event going to the Columbus Museum of Art. From 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday nights, visitors can meet designers in person and ask them questions about their work, such as who inspires them and how to trap excess chandelier light in decorative mason jars.
