    In this class, you’ll learn what to look for in a colored pencil, how different brands give you different qualities, which paper to use, plus how to mix color, create interesting textures, how to layer color, and how to burnish. Then, break out the watercolor pencils, and create a “mixed media” piece by using pencils as a paint and a drawing tool. You’ll never think of colored pencils the same again.

  4. 3D Plaster Painting with Kristina Hestenes-Stimson

    April 23, 2018, 9:00 AM - April 27, 2018, 12:00 PM

    Sculpting a 3-dimensional painting is fun, fast, and easy. Imagine playing with mud and adding found objects for a bit of collage. Students will use Plaster of Paris to create shapes on top of a burlap surface. Color is added into the plaster or painted on it while wet or dry. Wet plaster is shaped and small treasures can be imbedded in it. Dry plaster can be intentionally cracked or scraped to reveal color beneath and to give texture for interest. There are endless possibilities. When you are finished you will have a beautifully presented masterpiece. You will do a minimum of thee paintings in this class. However, once you get the hang of it you may want to do more.

  5. Claude Bourbon in Concert

    April 24, 2018, 7:30 PM

    Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories. Claude's style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso. For the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is Claude.
