Portraits in Pastel with Nancy Goff Pastel, Intermediate & Advanced Wednesdays Feb 27 – Mar 27, 2013; 1-4pm $150m/$180nm; Artist Demo: February 16, 2013, 1-4pm free This 5 week class is a focus on portraiture in pastel and is for the student who is familiar with pastels. The basics of portraiture and composition will be covered. Students will work from photographs or self-portraiture. Light and shadow are what it's all about. What to look for, establishing composition, and how to apply pastels are all part of the program. Goff teaches students how to make paintings come to life by building colors on a dark surface. There will be a Demo each day. Students will draw each day with advice, critiques and philosophy from Nancy. There will be appropriate hand-out sheets throughout the course to guide you. Her method is direct and her enthusiasm for the pastel medium is contagious. http://ngoffthestudio.com/

Second graders at Out-of-Door Academy crossed the mulch Thursday, May 23 as a symbolic gesture of the lower level entering the higher-level building next year. Third graders crossed the mulch on Tuesday, May 21 but the second graders – next year’s third graders – will be the first second graders to cross the mulch and be in the new building. Out-of-Door Academy donated the left over food to the Salvation Army. Approximately 38 children played games and later crossed the courtyard as parents snapped photographs.
