Weekend Top 6 Picks for February 10th and 11th.

Saturday February 10, 2018
10:30 AM to 230 PM. Free to sketch, $8.00 to watch the 1950s movie Born Yesterday. Sketching at the Enzian.  Enzian Theater 1300 S Orlando Ave, Maitland, Florida 32751.
Orlando Urban Sketchers is sketching the Saturday Matinee Classics at the Enzian, and we will be there to capture in sketches a time, an era and a space. Surrounded by weeping oaks, a bubbling fountain, and a beautiful courtyard, Enzian is a unique cinema-going experience, a dine-in theater packed with old-time charm we wish to document into our sketchbooks.
We plan on sketching in the Eden-Bar garden outside the theater at 10:30 am first.
At 12:00 pm the 1950's film Born Yesterday will be featured inside the theater. We plan on moving indoors as soon as doors open to sketch the theater interior where we can also grab lunch bites and watch the movie.
At 2:00pm we'll meet back at Eden Bar garden for our traditional Sketchbooks-throw down ceremony.
Watching the film is not mandatory. Sketching can be kept going outdoors to capture the moviegoers, the Eden Bar crowd, and Enzian's garden views.
There's an $8.00 general admission for those who wish to watch the film. Tickets can be purchased at the box-office or online (recommended) @ All skills are welcome. Bring your sketchbook and sketching supply of your choice.
Invite your friends and family and anyone who likes to sketch, or to spend a quality morning at the Enzian!

10 AM to Noon Free. Heartfulness Relaxation and Meditation Class. University, 5200 Vineland Rd, Orlando, FL 32811. The Method of Heartfulness A simple and practical way to experience the heart’s unlimited resources.

1 PM to 3 PM Free. Hidden Medicine Class with John Two-Hawks. Christ Church Unity Orlando 771 W Holden Ave, Orlando, Florida 32839. Grammy® nominated recording artist and author John Two-Hawks is a victim and a survivor of child abuse. It has taken him 30 years to arrive at the place in his life where he could finally tell his story. His new book and CD is a revealing window into the inner sanctum of John's very personal life journey from severe child abuse to victorious triumph, and how the sacred ways of indigenous wisdom revealed a profound truth hidden within. John wrote the book and music with the hope that it would help others to bravely blaze a path through their heart to find their own Hidden Medicine. In this class/workshop, John Two-Hawks will share his inspirational insights about how to be fully liberated from hurt and empowered by what we find within. There are three phases of that journey, and the third is often not realized. John will share the pathway of all three, with an emphasis on how to take that final step. An enlightening and uplifting experience for all.
