Drawing that Someone Special in Your Life

With Instructor: Sandi Cirillo
Tuesday Oct. 27, 2015, 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM

This one-day portraiture class will focus on learning the basic drawing skills needed to create a portrait of that someone special, human or animal. We’ll start out with several preliminary sketches, learning how to set up the face on drawing paper. Then we’ll add finishing details with black/white or color. You’ll leave class with a finished portrait that you created yourself, suitable for gift giving or to enhance the beauty of your own home. Read More about the class.

Senior College Chorale

Lila_Nation-1Lila Nation, choir director and French instructor, is starting a Senior College Chorale, open to the experienced singer or the complete novice, able to read music or not. It will run from from 11:45 am to 12:45 pm on Thursdays when classes are in session.

“The idea is to grab a quick lunch and come have fun making music together,” Lila says. Starting in August, there will be a sign-up sheet in the Senior College Office (Room 118) for all those interested. Lila is an extraordinarily gifted choir director (not to mention French teacher), so this should be a wonderful experience.
