Love is in the Air!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

We have a special day planned for you this year. The party begins at 1:30 pm with a visit from our local car enthusiasts from The Antique Auto Club of America. You may visit & check out these vintage beauties, take a photo in them & talk to the car owners about their history. The car show will be followed by the monthly tea party & a piano concert of Love songs by pianist Peter Solomon.

At Aravilla, we feel that art is an important part of our overall vision of mind, body, spirit. That’s why our assisted living community offers fine art classes every week in all types of media including; but not limited to watercolor, acrylics & glass mosaic. Our subjects can range anywhere from sea life & nature, abstract & realism. Our classes incorporate art history & videos highlighting artists, techniques & inspiration. As part of our art program, we also offer regular trips to museums & local art exhibits to experience first hand the rich culture of the Sarasota area We invite you to try something new, something you’ve never tried before & expand your horizons. All are welcome to visit the studio & observe the art classes, participate or suggest another project.
