Explore Archery Class @ Nova Fencing Club |  |  |

Our archery classes start with the Explore Archery program. This is a six week course, with 60 minute classes for ages 8 to 14.

Explore Archery is an innovative education program focused on introducing beginners to the lifelong sport of archery with a curriculum designed by USA Archery and taught by our USA Archery Level Two Instructor, Paul Dainauskas.

Our indoor archery program is fun, rewarding and developmentally progressive. These classes are focused on introducing first time archers to the lifelong sport of target archery. Our classes teach students the fundamentals of archery with fun games, not focusing on the archers ability to shoot a perfect score.

Archers can expect to learn range safety, the parts of the bow and arrows, and play fun archery games like Candy Shoot, Nock-Tac-Toe, Range Master and Treasure Shoot. Balloons will explode and candy & prizes will be won as the students move through the different skills such as Stance, Posture/Alignment, Nock, Anchor and Predicting. Each new skill earns an USA Archery Award.

A USA Archery Recreational membership is required for any participant who attends an Explore Archery program.

"Unleashed" National Juried Exhibition at Gallery Underground in August @ Gallery Underground |  |  |

“Unleashed” National Juried Exhibition at Gallery Underground in August
Dates: August 1-31, 2020
– No opening reception due to health safety regulations –
Gallery Underground’s Focus Gallery in August presents Unleashed, a national juried exhibition juried by Joseph Toole. Artists were given the following definition for “unleashed:” to free from or as if from a leash – let loose; or to throw, shoot, or set in motion forcefully. The show sought submissions of works with either a literal interpretation of setting free or setting in motion, or a more figurative response to the theme. The show features works from all over the country in a variety of media including paintings, photography, glass, fiber art and mixed media.

The Main Gallery presents an August show of new member work in all media.
