Time After Time - Opening Reception

Time After Time - Opening Reception

Lauren Hakala on her process and practice of making art:
"I have always been drawn to the beauty inherent in found and natural objects. My pockets and backpacks are always full of things I find lying on the ground or abandoned. I often find myself arranging natural materials according to a personal aesthetic. I am attracted to anything organic and am adamant about using materials over and over again, finding value in items that normally get discarded or disrespected.

I have dabbled in photography, card making, weaving, knitting, quilting, painting and collaging. But it was in teaching children to make recycled paper that I found my true calling. I love ripping paper into bits and soaking it, blending the fibers, and setting up the studio for my meditative practice. It has gotten me through many winters by the woodstove as I decompress from the demanding job of overseeing and teaching at a Montessori school.

I began my art practice by creating a piece a day. This daily ritual turned into month after month of panels. Eventually I assembled them into a personal calendar suspended from a branch in my hallway. Within these panels you can find the color of the day as it relates to the planets, numerology, special dates and celebrations, and morning intentions. That commitment of 15 minutes a day has enriched my awareness of the daily, monthly and yearly rhythms that shape my life.

All my panels fit in shoe boxes because when I was little, my pilot grandfather had a box of postcards that literally came from all over the world. I would pour over them, ordering and reordering them according to my dreams. It would take me weeks to find the same one again. Every time I held these photos it was like visiting with a friend from far away. When I was nine, we had to move and I never saw that faded pink box of postcards again. It has taken me decades to stop longing for them; I think that I make my art to fit into shoeboxes as a direct result of my longing. When I grow up, I will make my own shoebox collection to gift a grandchild some day.

The Music and History of John Coltrane

The Music and History of John Coltrane

John Coltrane was born on September 23, 1926 and died on July 17, 1967, a couple of months before his 41st birthday.

This course will examine Coltrane's life as a musician, his contemporaries, the era he played in, his creative energy, and what made him the musician he was. We will use recordings, videos, interviews, and comments other players and critics made about him in his time and today. The text for this class is John Coltrane by Bill Cole (2001) and will be provided to each student. If you already have a copy of this book please pay the $135 fee.

Inclusive Arts Education in Practice

Inclusive Arts Education in Practice

Offered by Inclusive Arts Vermont in partnership with the Southern Vermont Arts Center and the Vermont Arts Council, this experiential workshop is designed to illuminate the power of authentic, inclusive arts experiences. Through experimentation with arts materials and adaptations, participants will develop an appreciation for the value of inclusion, build on their current knowledge, and learn tools to use in their own practice. We invite participants to explore the value each student brings through a process-focused approach that cultivates belonging, engagement, and learning. The relationship between social and emotional skills and art making in groups will be examined. Time and space for reflection will be provided to identify ways to apply learning to individual practices.

“Seeing by example just how it’s done was valuable: how to invite participation, offer a gentle nudge along the way, draw out a ‘quiet’ student, provide safety in which to speak/do something new, the uses of deep listening.” -Previous Participant
