Winter Wednesdays: Mixed Media Art Classes For Grades 6 – 12 With Andrea Myklebust 1/13/21 - 2/10/21

Ages: Grades 6-12 Spend the afternoon exploring in the SVAC studios when school is closed. We will meet five times in January and February. This class is open to all. New students are welcome. Students from the fall class are also welcome to re-enroll and will be able to work on new projects–drawing, painting, and working with clay, wool, plaster and other three-dimensional materials. Geared for grades six and up, these classes will include both projects designed by the teacher and opportunities for students to work individually on projects and with materials that interest them. Masks required; registration limited to allow for physical distancing. We are currently planning for an in-person class and will shift to Zoom if necessary. If there is a switch, anyone who has registered will have the option either to withdraw–if they do not want to take on online class–and receive a refund for the remaining classes OR to stay for the remaining Zoom-based classes at a reduced rate. SVAC will also refund families if there are unexpected changes in your children’s schools’ plans that make attendance impossible. Scholarships available. Please contact Erin for more information: ekaufman@svac.org or 802.367.1306.

Mathew Brady: Portraits of the Civil War 1/26/21 - 1/26/21

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) is happy to welcome back Christopher Dant to talk about Civil War photographer Mathew Brady. On a sweltering morning in July 1861, with approval from President Lincoln and battle commanders, portrait photographer Mathew Brady, laden with heavy horse-drawn wagons set out into the depths of Union and Confederate armies violently clashing in the First Battle of Bull Run near his home in Manassas, Virginia. What began as his imagination to capture the first images of a local light engagement grew into dangerous years of a growing war with dozens of other photographers competing for their own fame. This presentation will show us the man that has been rightly called the father of photojournalism and his photographs. We’ll learn about his prominent rise and fall into obscurity from a war that broke him and through it, a look at the impossible task of photographing the American Civil War using newly-invented and cumbersome photographic methods that were literally being invented. No other photographer has had so great an impact on his profession—or the nation. Registration for the talk is $15 per person in advance. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.
