Cozy up to the kiln and join me for some hot chocolate and pastries as I head to the Glenwood Avenue Arts District to welcome the newest addition to the Rogers Park arts scene. Follow Me on Friday to Nodd Pottery, 7063 N. Glenwood, this Friday, November 10th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. After years of directing at other art studios and teaching preschool and kindergarten, Nodd Pottery founder, Sarah Ortlieb (see photo on below), decided that pottery was her true calling. Nodd Pottery is a non-profit organization that provides affordable and accessible art education for our community and its youth. Nodd Pottery offers a regular beginners pottery class called Learning to Center every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and an after-school enrichment program, “Art About You,” for children between the ages of six and 17. Nodd Pottery’s doors are open Fridays and Saturdays from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. for “Community Open Studio,” during which members of the community can walk in and exercise their own creativity with technical guidance and assistance. Nodd Pottery also offers private lessons, community workshops and kiln rental space for local artists. Sarah works with artists of all ages and capacities, including mentally disabled artists for whom she provides commissions that they can use to generate personal income. “I believe strongly in equal opportunity education as well as the importance of the arts in the life-long development of the individual,” says Sarah. “I aim to help others learn the communication skills they need, whether verbal or otherwise, to define and achieve success and happiness in their lives.” Enjoy some hot chocolate, marshmallows and pastries on a chilly late autumn day and check out Sarah’s studio where you’ll find a wide assortment of pottery. Get an early start on your holiday shopping at Nodd Pottery! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before. Previous Follow Me on Friday locations include Ethiopian Diamond II, 7537 N.
