DRAWING ESSENTIALS

Gerald Stephan, Instructor

 

8 Weeks: Wednesday, July 20, 2016 - Wednesday, September 7, 2016

$255 - All materials provided

 

The class covers the three critical elements you need to understand to draw realistically and with confidence. I will describe and demonstrate these techniques that apply to virtually any medium, althought the class will focus primarily on graphite and charcoal on paper. There will be class time for practice and review.

 

The class will also address a variey of topics of interest including:

Lighting the subject

The effect of highlights and shadows

Image Transfer

Perspective

Drawing a likeness

Pen and Ink

Drawing on toned Paper

 

Although this class is designed for beginning art students it has proved to be very valuable for atrists at any level who desire to improve their drawing skills. What you learn in this class is essential for painting realistically in any medium and even abstract painters will find it useful. Your appreciation of art in general will also be enhanced once you better understand the challenges and solutions of the great artists.

Held in RED QUEEN GALLERY.

Barrier Island Center's "Introduction to Essential Oils" Class  -  Machipongo
(8/2/2016)
Calendar Image

"Introduction to Essential Oils"

Class Instructor: Lara Hubbard

Cost: $20.

Essential oils contain the life force of the plant from which they are derived. The art of essential oils has been around well before Biblical times, and is quite often referenced in the Bible. These powerful drops have been used in many different cultures for their healing abilities and have only recently made their way into our culture. The benefits and uses of essential oils are quite vast and are starting to be found in many of the "natural" products available in stores these days.

Although essential oils are often thought of for their healing properties, their uses also range from household products like all-purpose cleaners and deodorizers to beauty products like body butter and foot scrubs.

In this introduction class, we will discuss the most common oils used - both "singles" and "blends." We will then break out into a workshop and have some fun!! Participants will experience the oils first hand and will learn the craft of a few DIYs with oils. All the items you make, you will take home to enjoy!

Call the BIC at 678-5550 to register or sign-up online at barrierislandscenter.org.

TOWN OF EXMORE CELEBRATES

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

with a

PARTY IN THE PARK


It’s a neighborhood block party with a purpose. National Night Out, celebrated nationwide each August, is designed to strengthen community spirit and unite against crime.  Exmore’s Police Department is joining police departments across the US in observing National Night Out, set for Tuesday, August 2, 2016. Residents of Exmore and all neighboring communities are invited to participate in this town-wide event highlighted by a Party in the Town Park from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

With one night a year earmarked for citizens to get to know their neighbors and their local law enforcement officers, National Night Out heightens awareness of crime and drug prevention efforts spearheaded by local officials. At the same time, it sends a message to the criminal element that citizens are organized and ready to work in unity to keep their streets and neighborhoods safe.

The local event for Northampton County is co-sponsored by the Town of Exmore Police Department in partnership with the National Association of Town Watch.

VIMS Public Seminar Series- Hormones and Migrating Blue-winged Teal by Dr. Morgan Wilson  -  Wachapreague
(8/3/2016)

Public Seminar Series

  

The Virginia Institute of Marine Science Eastern Shore Laboratory will hold their public seminar series on the first Wednesday of the month.  We hope you will be able to join us.

 

 Hormones and Migrating Blue-winged Teal: A Waterfowl Species that Migrates Like a Songbird

 Dr. Morgan Wilson

Associate Professor

Hollins University, Roanoke VA

 

 

Blue-winged Teal initiate southward migration from their breeding grounds in late summer, displaying a fall migratory pattern unique among North American waterfowl and similar to that of many Neotropical songbirds.  Corticosterone, the major avian hormone of stress and energy regulation, is known to influence migratory physiology in songbirds.  However, little is known about this response in migratory waterfowl.  Dr. Wilson explores how blue-winged teal hormone levels compare to songbirds and what this means for migration.

  Virginia Institute of Marine Science

40 Atlantic Avenue

The seminar is free and open to everyone.  Seating capacity is 60 people and space is available on a first come-first serve basis.  Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.  For further information call VIMS at 787-5816.

Cape Charles Civic Center- Children's Author Night: "Pea Soup and the Seafood Feast."  -  Cape Charles
(8/9/2016)

Children's Author Night: "Pea Soup and the Seafood Feast."

 

Anna Burger will read from her book, Pea Soup and the Seafood Feast.

"When his mother tells him they're having pea soup for dinner, Jack wonders how he'll survive. Then he comes up with a plan: he'll catch his own seafood feast instead! Relying on skills learned from his grandfather, the resourceful boy embarks on a seaside adventure, casting for fish, digging for clams, and setting traps for blue crabs. In the process he learns that the only thing better than a basket full of crabs or a bucket full of clams is a heart full of appreciation for the natural wonders of the bay.

With playful prose and vivid watercolor illustrations, Pea Soup and the Seafood Feast teaches readers to value and sustain their environment with gratitude for life's little gifts." -annaburger.weebly.com

Anna, who "grew up on Onancock Creek, where she had her first boat at age 12, and learned how to crab and fish from her father and grandfather. After several years practicing law, she is now following her first love - writing." - annaburger.weebly.com. She is a member of the Society of Childrens' Bookwriters and Illustrators.

Children are asked to wear comfortable clothes - children will be seated on mats on the floor.

Anna will be selling and signing her book at this free event.  (Cash only, please.)  Snacks, apple juice, and water will be provided. 50/50.

International Movie - Pride  -  Onancock
(8/11/2016)

A culture-clash comedy and true story that ends up making you feel both exuberant and tolerant. "They're all in there getting along," one character comments, as he considers the two groups who are holding a rally. It’s 1984 and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike. A London-based group of gay and lesbian activists decide to raise money to support the strikers. Rebuffed by the Union, the group sets off to a small town in Wales to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together
makes for the strongest union of all. It's a movie that proves we can all get along, a message much needed today.
