Tuesdays & Wednesdays September 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28 October 4, 5 7th-12th grade Filmmaking is visual storytelling. How the story is told will affect whether the film is memorable or utterly forgettable. In this workshop, young filmmakers will explore the basics of storytelling in film with an emphasis on story, plot and characters. Each participant will choose an aspect of film that appeals to them (ie. editing) and will participate on their team in that capacity. The final result will be a collaboratively created short film. This workshop is for every young fan of film regardless of experience. Instructor: Sequana Skye
For the first time, Galen Cheney is offering her workshop over the course of two days, so participants will be able to dig in, have time to reflect, and make real strides with their work. The additional day also allows for more discussion as well as exploration into the work of other painters who succeed in pushing at the boundaries of painting. Through short and long painting sessions, manipulation of materials, and interaction within the group, this workshop will spur you to find new approaches and attitudes toward your work that make painting a joyful experience, full of discovery. The goal is to energize you and make paintings that surprise and excite you. Instructor: Galen Cheney
The Town of Stowe’s event field will be transformed into a Bavarian village, under a traditional tent this year for this annual celebration of the harvest and fall foliage. From Oompah bands to authentic Bavarian foods and freshly brewed Vermont beers to traditional sing-a-longs and dancing, even a silent auction… there’s something for every “villager”… young and old. It’s a weekend full of music, dancing, and of course great beer. Oktoberfest is a great time for a good cause. Last year, Oktoberfest allowed Stowe Rotary to provide over $50,000.00 worth of support to over twenty local charities and scholarships in the greater Lamoille/Washington County region.
