June 30th, 2015 · Comments Off on Oil Painting Class
Join us Mondays from 1 – 4PM from July 20 through August 24* for our popular Oil Painting Class.
Explore the fundamentals of oil painting in a fun and casual setting with artist Glenda Blake. Together we’ll paint from a still life in the classroom, learning as we go about composition, underpainting, light, shadow, and color. If you’ve always wanted to paint in oils, now is the time! If you have painting experience already, come to learn new techniques and gain confidence – there’s always something more to learn!
Please bring a portable floor easel if you have one (available on loan from the instructor, if you don’t) and a work apron, and/or wear older clothing to paint in.
There is a $15 fee to cover the cost of supplies, and space is limited, so sign up today!
* There will be no class on August 10.
June 29th, 2015 · Comments Off on Book Discussion: Station Eleven: A Novel.
Join us on Tuesday July 14 at 6:30PM to discuss Station Eleven: A Novel by Emily St. John Mandel.
Kirsten Raymonde will never forget the night Arthur Leander, the famous Hollywood actor, had a heart attack on stage during a production of King Lear. That was the night when a devastating flu pandemic arrived in the city, and within weeks, civilization as we know it came to an end.
Twenty years later, Kirsten moves between the settlements of the altered world with a small troupe of actors and musicians. They call themselves The Traveling Symphony, and they have dedicated themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the tiny band’s existence. And as the story takes off, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, the strange twist of fate that connects them all will be revealed.
