Instructor: Cornelia Hasenfuss

This class introduces the young photographer to the basics of making images and camera use. Students will learn how to think and see like photographers, exploring the creative process of making an image. We will complete weekly photo assignments using digital cameras, from basic framing of the image to more advanced concepts in image creation. An overview of the evolution of photography will also be integrated into the class. Critique and analysis will be part of the course; talking about the photographs is an integral aspect of the photographic process. We will look at the images on a computer or in contact sheet format, with limited instruction in editing and printing software - this is not a digital printing class. Please bring your own camera (if you do not have one, we may be able to loan a camera for class time only).

A materials fee of $8, payable to the instructor, is due at the first session. There is a limit of eight participants.Instructor: Sharon BiddleParticipants will be creating a hard cover blank book. The two-part binding process involves sewing together the cover boards in a puzzle-like weave, and binding the inside pages by attaching them to the cover. This book uses the dramatic-looking sewing as the centerpiece of its design. Because the pages lie flat, the book is ideal as a travel journal, a garden journal, or a sketchbook. All supplies and materials will be provided, as will written instructions for each participant to take home. All three sessions will be held in the classroom on the lower level of Catamount Arts Center.Sharon Biddle has been teaching bookbinding for 15 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 well-made book that is entirely one's own from cover to cover is a valuable example of imagination and careful craftsmanship.

You may well have already been enchanted by folk singer Julie Fowlis – and not know it. Her intoxicating and crystalline vocals on the soundtrack to Pixar’s 2012 animated film Brave helped spur international acclaim for her sublime talent.But Fowlis’ position as one of the world’s most esteemed and celebrated Gaelic singers didn’t come overnight. It was earned over the last decade by producing four studio albums, exhaustively researching and reviving Gaelic songs – many from North Uist, in the Outer Hebrides where she grew up - and performing and collaborating extensively with artists such as Grammy-Award winning James Taylor, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Le Vent du Nord, and violin virtuoso Nicola Benedetti.Nominated for BBC Radio 2’s 2015 'Folk Singer of the Year' award, and for 'Best Artist' at the 2015 Songlines World Music Awards, Fowlis has performed around the globe, from village halls in the Highlands, to theatres in Paris, Vienna, London and New York. Her live singing at the opening ceremony of the 2014 Glasgow XX Commonwealth Games played to a TV audience of more than 1 billion people.It would be easy enough for Fowlis to simply allow her audiences to be bathed in gorgeous Gaelic vocals (although even a mere 1% of Scots understand Gaelic). But her uniquely warm stage personality and explanations of each selection serve to draw audiences of all ages deeply into her world.
