Northern Vermont Songwriters

Location: Catamount Outback Artspace

Admission: Free

Northern Vermont Songwriters is a new organization for songwriters to share knowledge and maximize creativity. Membership and meetings are free. We meet at 6:45 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month in the wooden octagonal building behind Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury. Songwriters from Vermont, New Hampshire and anywhere else are invited to attend, and all genres of music are welcome. Songwriters may bring a song to share. The song may be performed live for the group, or a recording may be played (an iPhone dock will be available). Songwriters are encouraged to bring 6 copies of lyrics to share with the group. They may also bring lyrics only, or choose to simply listen and comment on the songs of others. Members might be invited to participate in public performances, including a Songwriter Round at Catamount Arts and at First Night. Another exciting benefit is occasional workshops hosted by music industry professionals, designed to help songwriters improve their craft. Please join us for our next meeting. Any questions should be sent to jakarns33@gmail.com; or phone: (802) 467-9859.

Location: Catamount Outback Artspace

Class fee: Class fee: $80 (10% discount for Catamount Arts members and high school students).

Instructor: Steven Edson

This one day workshop helps new and experienced photographers develop their unique vision. We will use St. Johnsbury as our backdrop and explore the textures, architecture, people and landscape to become better storytellers. Together, we will go out in the morning and explore parts of St. Johnsbury and discuss what we are seeing and figure out different ways of capturing it. At lunch, we will look at the different images everyone shot and discuss why they are successful or not. In the afternoon we will take our new sense of knowledge and go out again and photograph a different part of St. Johnsbury and return to discuss those images as well.

This is not a technical class, although we will cover basics and make sure that you are using your camera correctly to advance your photographic skills.

Steven Edson is an award winning fine art photographer based in Boston, MA. He has taught college degree courses in photography as well as continues to have a successful commercial photography career. He has a wealth of aesthetic and technical knowledge and is pleased to share it to benefit individuals trying to move forward with their own vision.

Sharon Kenney Biddle has been teaching bookbinding for more than fifteen years. She believes that old-fashioned paper-filled books, especially ones that we make ourselves, are not obsolete or irrelevant. Designing a book and building its contents are worthy, satisfying experiences. A book that is entirely one's own from cover to cover is a splendid example of imagination and careful craftsmanship.
