Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts

Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts
Description:

The Why
Out-of-school learning programs in the summer months provide critical support and enriching experiences for children and teens.
A safe, healthy environment over the summer weeks can make all the difference in a child’s inner and outer well-being. The opportunity to discover or pursue passions is invaluable.
Self-confidence soars as collaborative abilities strengthen during camp experiences that develop age-appropriate skills.
The How
Get absorbed in imaginative, creative projects that whiz, buzz, jitter, wobble, wiggle, blink, and shine.
Learn about electrical circuitry and take away items that you may wish to continue working on at home
The What
Participants may choose to integrate their creations into video expressions that can be filmed and edited to include sound and animations.
With a wide variety of materials and digital media, this program experience will include construction of cardboard pinball machines, simple robots, and simple electronic wearable items.
Both an imaginative and creative outlet for vacation fun AND a structured opportunity to use building tools and follow a progression of skill-building.
We will build small robots, hack into electronic toys, and create wearable electronics such as bracelets, hats, hairbands, etc.
To learn about electrical circuitry, we'll use LEDs, coincell batteries and conductive materials such as thread, paint, and electro-dough.
We'll use hobby motors, alligator clips, and battery packs, and more.
We may even use a sewing machine, a soldering iron, or a dremel -- maybe even all three.

Time: 2/26/18 9:00am - 8/25/18 3:00am

Art workshop: All Together Now: Collage, Drawing, and Painting on Paper Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

All Together Now: Collage, Drawing, and Painting on Paper

Create unique works on paper with mixed materials and processes. Basic drawing, painting, and collage will be explored through different exercises and then expanded upon. We’ll draw and paint with graphite, charcoal, ink, acrylic, and gouache. Different adhesives, materials, and cutting methods will be used in collage. We’ll consider what each piece “needs” and hone our “seeing” skills, whether the composition is abstract or images.

Participants may bring in previous prints and drawings to work with, though no experience is necessary for this workshop. Discussion of your works in progress, examples of other artists’ work, and the creative process will be ongoing throughout the weekend.

WHEN: June 23 and 24, 9:30-4:30 (or as late as you want to work on your own in the studio).
WHERE: Leslie Fry’s spacious studio at 48 Elm St., Winooski, VT.
COST: $350, materials fee $50. A deposit of $100 (Paypal, check, credit card) one week (preferably earlier) before the workshop will secure your place.

Bring your own lunch, a cooler with drinks and snacks will be on hand. Minimum of 4 people, maximum 6. Everyone will have plenty of individual help.

The Creative Cello Workshop with Eugene Friesen

The Creative Cello Workshop with Eugene Friesen Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

It’s a new day for the cello! It seems like everybody wants a cello onstage with them. From singer/songwriters, Brazilian combos, bluegrass bands, and every breed of rock group, people are inventing new uses for the cello that bring this special instrument into contemporary settings.

Come join a community of cellists exploring new ways of collaborating and using our instruments. Innovative rhythmic techniques, accompanying singers and other soloists, creating cello parts in a “band” setting, practicing for being a lead voice in an ensemble – these are issues demanding creative solutions for the contemporary cellist.

Among the many questions addressed at the workshop: How do I practice to cultivate originality? How do I expand my comfort with chords? How can I create melodies through thorny chord progressions? How can I add more rhythmic tension and variation in my improvising and composing? How can I create rich accompaniments by covering the bass notes and harmony while keeping a groove? How can I make cello parts that don’t get overwhelmed by drums and bass?

As well as some hardware questions: Should I have an electric instrument? What type of pickup helps me to cut through a rhythm section while retaining my great cello sound? What electronics do I need to make the cello a compelling arena-sized voice?

In the Creative Cello Workshop you'll meet creative and collaborative players, share stylistic tips, jam with other cellists, explore new repertoire for cello ensemble, perform new pieces, and have the opportunity to improvise and play solos in a group.

Eugene Friesen has worked with hundreds of innovative cellists in jazz, rock, and folk settings. Eugene’s classes at the Berklee College of Music - and three decades of workshops throughout the United States and at international cello festivals - have influenced a generation of players who are changing the face of the cello for audiences worldwide.

Eugene will also be teaching his personal techniques including “Afro-Pizz,” a double-handed pizzicato technique featured in original pieces like “Shadowplay” and “Street Corner;” his signature multi-glissando featured in “Dances of Rasputin;” polyrhythmic col legno, etc.

Special guest, Jacob Szekely, is one of the world's first and foremost modern jazz cellists. A fluent improviser, collaborative musician, and gifted teacher, Jacob will bring a contemporary perspective on life as a sideman, studio musician, and jazz soloist.

Across all disciplines, collaboration is the new norm of creativity. To gain practice in collaborative work, we encourage participants to bring original music and sketches to the Workshop. We will play each other’s music and through the process of “workshopping,” we will discuss alternatives, work together, try new ideas and prepare pieces for public performance.
"Eugene's workshop was the best pure music-making I have experienced in many years. His openness,
depth of knowledge, and mastery of the cello led everyone to unlock doors to personal expression
that will stay open for a long time. This weekend was a gift."
-- Crispin Campbell, Cellist / Educator, Interlochen Arts Academy, Michigan

"Oh, I see how this works. Yesterday you couldn't get me to play a solo,
and today you can't get me to stop!"
-- Janet Haarvig, Cellist and Composer, Montana

Time: 6/21/18 4:00pm - 6/25/18 1:00pm
