$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
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.

"Introduction to Essential Oils"
Class Instructor: Lara Hubbard
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.

Lunch & Learn About the Eastern Shore - "Recent History of Assateague Island"
By Joe Fehre
The devastating effects of the Ash Wednesday Storm of 1962 led to the end of development plans on Assateague and provided an opportunity for the National Park Service to acquire the land. Joe Fehrer shares his personal account of living on the island during Assateague's historical shift from becoming "Ocean Beach", the next seaside resort, to the creation of a National Seashore in 1965. Lunch provided, cost: $10. Choice of Turkey, Ham, or Veggie sandwich and choice of Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, or chips. Also cookie and water.

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.
500 Tazewell Avenue
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.
