•  SCAA General Meeting and Artist Demonstration - Join the Santa Clarita Artists Association at Barnes & Noble Valencia for their monthly meeting and artist demonstration, held on the third Monday of each month at Barnes and Noble Valencia. The August meeting will feature a demonstration by abstract artist Nancy Eckels.

"A creative block is overcome only by working on your art, not sitting on a couch waiting for inspiration. My paintings are a combination of sculpture and painting. I begin with a texture medium, which I sculpt by shaping, carving and manipulating on the canvas. When I apply the texture, I keep in mind a loose composition and try to imagine what it might become. I want to make something new. I've often thought that abstract art is the purest form of what people consider a one-of-a-kind art," Eckels says.

The Legend of Jack the Ripper experience, lasting about 30 minutes, includes a media-based pre-show providing guests a glimpse into the history of the murders. Once inside the Wax House, you'll pick up and hold virtual items, open drawers, search for clues and work together as a team of four to find your way out - or become the next victim. The Jack the Ripper Immersive Experience opens August 31 and runs through Halloween night. Tickets are expected to sell out, so snatch yours quickly.
