Make a Zine class for Homeschoolers

Make a Zine class for Homeschoolers

Catamount Arts will offer a zine-making class for homeschooled students ages 10-14, beginning in November. Make a Zine! will take place Thursdays from noon to 2pm, November 7th through December 19th, with no class on Thanksgiving. Class will meet in the Catamount Arts Classroom downstairs at 115 Eastern Avenue.
Zines are self-published works, often a mix of text and images, usually reproduced on a photocopier for limited distribution. Instructor Lassiter Williams will lead students in writing and assembling their own poetry or prose, collages and other artwork into zines which they will create individually and/or collectively.
Students will brainstorm ideas, map out a plan for presentation, and then draw, write, doodle, cut, paste, scribble, sketch, and print their way to handmade zines ready for distribution.
Writer and teacher Lassiter Williams earned a bachelor’s degree from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA in Children’s Literature from Hollins University. Her debut fantasy novel, “The Rage,” was published this year by Regent Street Press.
Tuition for Make a Zine! is $110 per child with a ten percent discount for each additional sibling. The sibling discount must be taken in person at the box office at the Catamount Arts Center. Catamount Arts is committed to offering quality arts activities for children regardless of ability to pay.

'The View From Here' by Jennifer Hubbard

'The View From Here' by Jennifer Hubbard

Reception & Artist Talk Thursday November 14, 5-7pm. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.

Jennifer Hubbard’s oil paintings feature scenes from Lamoille and Orleans counties, and capture barns and agricultural subjects in the vivid illumination of late afternoon light. In some paintings, she tweaks her color palette to add a contemporary, surreal twist on traditional rural landscape painting. The resulting paintings merge realistic, recognizable scenes with a touch of painterly abstraction. Jennifer Hubbard grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, where she studied painting and drawing at the Mitchell School of Fine Arts, and Maryland Institute, College of Art. She moved to Vermont in 2009.

“My work has always been primarily focussed on portraiture. When I moved to Vermont, where the landscape is such a powerful influence on daily life, I decided to move my subjects outside, into the environment. I was interested in capturing the interaction between people and the outdoors, particularly as the seasons change.” Hubbard gradually started replacing figures with barns and other architectural elements. The resulting paintings bring to mind both Impressionism and Photorealism, and offer a contemporary perspective of the people and landscapes of Vermont.

ROBERT MALLORY KLEIN: THE CHARACTER OF THE KINGDOM

ROBERT MALLORY KLEIN: THE CHARACTER OF THE KINGDOM

In 1991 Robert Mallory Klein, a world-traveled, retired diplomat living in Elmore, decided to paint the villages and hamlets of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom – over 100 in all. He spent many consecutive summers painting several views of each. His broad strokes of bold color, afforded by summer light and reminiscent of Hopper, portray routine places that one might otherwise take for granted. Klein painted ordinary scenes – the farmhouse, the local breakfast counter, patched roofs and leaning porches – and captured the lives of the people who lived there, however modest and humble. What remains are the enduring images of the towns and villages he loved. In a sense he documented a history of the Northeast Kingdom; many of the places have changed with the times; many remain the same, and some no longer exist.

“Stunning reinventions of songs with subtle beatboxing and audacious harmonies... superhero singing to truly raise goosebumps.” – The Guardian (London)

“The legendary Swingle Singers navigated the dauntingly virtuosic terrain with breathtaking and often quite beautiful results.” – Bay Area Reporter (San Francisco)

“The Swingle Singers pitched those mysteriously lovely chords with laser-like precision... a triumph” – The Daily Telegraph (London)

The festive season hasn’t truly begun until you’ve spent an evening wrapped in the warm vocal magic of The Swingles. With folk and jazz-inspired a cappella originals alongside traditional carols and holiday favorites, the five-time Grammy winners evoke ice-bound worlds, blankets of snow and fireside sing-alongs.

For more than half a century, The Swingles have pushed the boundaries of vocal music. The seven young singers that make up today’s London-based group are driven by the same innovative spirit that has defined them since they first made waves in the 1960s. At a time when a cappella music is more popular than ever, The Swingles are recognized as masters of their craft.

The Swingles have appeared on numerous film and TV soundtracks, including Sex and the City, Wedding Crashers, Grey’s Anatomy and Glee. In 2017, they co-wrote and performed a song for the end credits of Alexander Payne’s film Downsizing. Their prolific output of music videos has also earned them millions of views online and new audiences around the world.

The Swingles display their uncommon range and diversity through dozens of collaborations, performing to great acclaim around the world, including recent performances at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall with Michael Tilson Thomas, London’s Royal Festival Hall with Vladimir Jurowsky, and Milan’s La Scala with John Axelrod.

'The View From Here' by Jennifer Hubbard

'The View From Here' by Jennifer Hubbard

Reception & Artist Talk Thursday November 14, 5-7pm. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.

Jennifer Hubbard’s oil paintings feature scenes from Lamoille and Orleans counties, and capture barns and agricultural subjects in the vivid illumination of late afternoon light. In some paintings, she tweaks her color palette to add a contemporary, surreal twist on traditional rural landscape painting. The resulting paintings merge realistic, recognizable scenes with a touch of painterly abstraction. Jennifer Hubbard grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, where she studied painting and drawing at the Mitchell School of Fine Arts, and Maryland Institute, College of Art. She moved to Vermont in 2009.

“My work has always been primarily focussed on portraiture. When I moved to Vermont, where the landscape is such a powerful influence on daily life, I decided to move my subjects outside, into the environment. I was interested in capturing the interaction between people and the outdoors, particularly as the seasons change.” Hubbard gradually started replacing figures with barns and other architectural elements. The resulting paintings bring to mind both Impressionism and Photorealism, and offer a contemporary perspective of the people and landscapes of Vermont.

On display at The Museum of Everyday Life through the end of the year, “The Pivot and the Blade (an intimate look at scissors)" looks at the long human relationship to scissors. We’ll reveal the elegance of scissors design, and explore the myriad professional, creative, superstitious, violent and domestic uses of scissors throughout the ages. All kinds of scissors will be on display, in addition to our ever-expanding permanent collection of everyday life objects. The Museum of Everyday Life is a self-service museum, open every day from 8am-8pm, and is located at 3482 Dry Pond Rd. (Rt. 16) in Glover, a short distance South of the Shadow Lake Rd.
