Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour

DaVinci Art Studios has taken over WLAST social media today!📱Support our visual artists 👩‍🎨 by sharing this post with friends and family and coming out to Franklin Arts Park stage on June 1st and 2nd for the Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour 🖼️!

Good morning! VSA Loudoun DaVinci Artists Studio (tour stop #26) has taken over Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tours (WLAST) social media! (We are the 11th takeover so if you've missed some, go check them out on previous posts!)

We are a non-profit, volunteer board-run organization providing arts opportunities for people with disabilities. We appreciate the fabulous support in donations of time, money, and supplies that we have received from Loudoun County residents and out-of-town fans. We have a theater production every spring and an annual art show in conjunction at Franklin Park Arts Center (FPAC).

Our primary focus is on the art process but the artists are thrilled when people appreciate their art products. We hope people will swing by to see our artists in action on June 1-2 at Franklin Park A

We have two studio locations generously shared with us by our host organizations FPAC and Arc of Loudoun (formerly Paxton), ALLY building.

Today we will visit the FPAC (tour stop #26) but I didn't want to leave out our Leesburg-based Arc of Loudoun Artists, so first here's a sneak peek of what our artist Elizabeth Thompson is currently painting. Elizabeth also makes pottery (with WLAST artist from the Clay and Metal Loft studio) and crochets hats, scarves, bags and makes tie dye shirts. You can meet her on Sunday June 2nd at FPAC on the stage

Meet "TREASURES" Choreographer Laura Zimmerman!

“Miss Laura, VSA is the best thing that ever happened to me,” said actor Sasha Kourakina, “and VSA is going to be the best thing that ever happened to you”.

Laura had seen a couple shows by VSA – Loudoun (the County’s performing and visual arts organization for people of all abilities) before she came on board last year as “Mrs. TV” in “Willy Wonka”. The show was directed by Karlah Louis, and it was Karlah who recommended Laura to VSA as Choreographer for this year’s, “TREASURES: The Musical Adventures of Tom Sawyer”.

And, "Sasha was right," says Laura. It’s been a great fit.

A dancer since she was three, Laura became a professional ballerina with the Jazz Ballet Company in Chicago; she studied with Alvin Ailey and the American Ballet Theatre, and in cities all over the world – London, Paris, Milan, Brussels, Stockholm – wherever Jazz Ballet Company performances took her.

And then, lucky for us, in 2003 she moved to Loudoun where she began to teach ballet and tap at Loudoun Valley Community Center. Some of those classes included kids and adults with a range of disabilities, and she fell in love with the students.

She challenges them at every turn – going for that higher level but ready to change things, as needed. But they’re always up for a challenge.

Her favorite “TREASURES” dance number so far is “It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” - the big town picnic where the young girls dance, and the boys do their bit, and then they dance as couples. The energy and joy the actors bring is infectious, and we guarantee audiences will be toe tapping to that number for years to come.

Which suits Laura just fine, because she says, “I look forward to working with VSA – Loudoun for many, many years to come”.

“TREASURES: The Musical Adventures of Tom Sawyer”, written by Dolly Stevens and Tom Sweitzer, opens Friday, March 22 at Franklin Park Arts Center, Purcellville. Get your tickets online today and save $$ at VSAloudoun.org.

Opening Night for "TREASURES: The Musical Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is coming soon! You can feel that anticipation at every rehearsal, now. Last Thursday’s music rehearsal – a case in point!

Musical Director Sophie Tenaglia has been hard at work to make our production “sing”. Sophie is new to VSA – Loudoun and new to the work of Music Director, but she sees it as a perfect fit for her.

An intern at A Place to Be – the nonprofit for Music Therapy in Middleburg, VA, Sophie holds an MS in Music Therapy from Radford University and a bucket of enthusiasm. Sophie says being Musical Director for VSA – Loudoun, the County organization providing creative opportunities to people of ALL abilities through the performing & visual arts – is giving her the opportunity to understand of the different kinds of practice each person requires, adapting a teaching style for each that will challenge them but avoid triggers.

And she loves collaborating with Director Amanda Barr, appreciates the support she gets from cast and crew, and especially loves this cast’s willingness to try hard to make it right. “They love to be here - to try it again. Always happy to do a song again! And not just one line – the whole song!”

And the music in "TREASURES" is a blast, so why wouldn’t they?

At every show, VSA – Loudoun becomes a family, and this family is ready to put on a great show. Be there to cheer them on!

"TREASURES" runs March 22 - 31 at Franklin Park Arts Center. Tickets at VSA-Loudoun.org (Buy online early and save!).
