"It is not our task to judge the worthiness of our path; it is our task to walk our path with worthiness. We have been blinded by the light of heroes and saints. We must learn to trust the light we are given, and to value the light that we can shed into the lives of those around us." -Kent Nerbern in his book "Small Graces"
I am pleased to share with you pictures of the City Neighbors Hamilton Charter School Mosaic Mural which was a community project involving school students, parents and AmeriCorp young adults. All tiles laid on this 12ft medallion that represents the school's logo were laid in one day! It has been installed on the high school entrance side of City Neighbors Hamilton which faces Carter Ave., it's worth a drive by! I will be posting more pictures on rizingsonglassworks.com and additional mosaics & classes are coming to Hamilton in the near future!

News from Elissa Thomas of the Hamilton Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library:
Summer Reading Program finished up with a bang and now all of a suddenwe are into fall!
The afterschool teen game night resumes on a weekly basis Tuesdayafternoons, also at 3:30 p.m. Mother Goose Baby Steps happens every Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m.for infants and their caregivers. Daycares and other groups arewelcome to attend! Preschool Leaps takes place every Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. forkids ages 3-5. It is a great opportunity for children to develop alove of books and stories. We do a lot of moving-around activities tokeep things lively.
One might say that I'm jumping the gun here, but it looks like Beth's DIY Workshop is moving.... three doors down the street. I am in the process of purchasing the old Ham-o-Lea Pleasure Club building (4315 Harford Road). It is my hope that I will be able to move the shop in the next couple of months. I may start having my classes there as soon as October. It all depends on when closing happens and I get my use and occupancy permit.
So what does this mean for the community?
It is my hope that with the added space that I can offer a convenience hardware store, provide a community meeting space, form a non-profit tool library/bank, set up a community work exchange board, and hold more comprehensive classes. I will continue to make keys, repair screens, cut glass (I will now stock glass),repair lamps and assist you in your home improvement projects in any way that I can.
I need something from you. First, I need your ideas of what you would like in terms of a hardware store. I will never be a True Value or an Ace, but I do want to get a sense from you of what you want. Second, what do you think about a tool bank? Come on by the shop and give JoAnn or I your ideas or go to www.bethsdiyworkshop.com and send me an email. I am at the shop on Tuesdays from 6 to 8 PM during the market and on Friday and Saturday.
New classes will begin September 22. See you at the Lauraville Fair on September 25. I also plan to have a few events at the shop, not the least of which, is an open house before the renovations start so that everyone in the neighborhood can finally see what the mysterious Pleasure Club was like inside.
Thank you, all for supporting Beth's DIY Workshop. I love working with and serving in this community.
See you 'round the hood - Beth
PS The Shop will be closed Friday Sept 17 and Saturday Sept 18 in memory of my sister, Tracy, who took her life in 2005 on that weekend. Thank you again.

Greetings everyone! Arts & Ideas would love to make your acquaintance. We've been somewhat quiet as we've established ourselves and grown from 9 to 40 students. We are so thrilled to begin our third year! (School started Wednesday, September 8, 2010.)
We are located in the beautiful Church of the Messiah on Harford and White Avenue (where you might pick up your CSA produce!). We are one of three Maryland Sudbury Schools and one of thirty plus Sudbury Schools world-wide. This approach to education has been around since 1968 and began at the Sudbury Valley School in MA. Sudbury Valley in turn, took it's inspiration from the Summerhill School in England, founded in 1921 and still going strong today.
Arts & Ideas was founded in 2008 by Arcadian residents, Danny Mydlack and Caroline Chavasse, after relocating to Baltimore from Los Angeles, and specifically choosing the Lauraville area based soley by looking at the website! We choose this area to found the school because of its vitality, cohesiveness and the obvious love and dedication people have for this northeast corner of Baltimore.
We spent a few years getting to know families at a playgroup we founded at Faith Community Church and felt some families might appreciate having another school choice among the already strong group of neighborhood schools. We also felt that this area could embrace the healthy and somewhat challenging discussions the Sudbury approach often prompts about education. Happily, a few families have either moved to this area or have not moved from this area so their children could attend Arts & Ideas.
We hope to contribute to the whole pie by being just one more interesting slice in this fine community!Staff also includes Liz Smith from Hamilton (also known for her backyard chickens and bees) and former Rock Candy proprieter, Joel Tyson. If you'd like to learn more about us, you can visit our website: aisudbury.com.
Also, please join us as we host the Baltimore screening of the documentary Race to Nowhere. This must-see documentary is currently getting national buzz on sites like The Huffington Post, with screenings in communities all over America, including New York and Los Angeles for week-long runs. All proceeds from the showing will go to benefit Arts & Ideas Tuition Assistance Program. Ticket information is on our site: aisudbury.com
Here is a blurb about the documentary:
"Director Vicki Abeles turns the personal political, igniting a national conversation in her new documentary about the pressures faced by American schoolchildren and their teachers in a system and culture obsessed with the illusion of achievement, competition and the pressure to perform. Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids, Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired."
