    Compass Arts Women's Choir Gina SamardgeBeacon Rising Women's Choir
    Directed by Gina Samardge
    Mondays, 7:30pm-9pm, October 1 to February 25 (no class 12/24 or 12/31)
    Once a month option will meet the 3rd Monday of each month - 10/15, 11/19, 12/17, 1/21, 2/18
    Performance: the weekend of March 1-3 (exact day/time TBD)

    Beacon Rising Women's Choir was conceived out of a combination of a Women's Singing Circle led by Kim Chase and Gina Samardge, and an impromptu Resistance Choir inspired by what has become the anthem of the Women's March, MILCK's "I Can't Keep Quiet." This year-old Women's Choir will focus primarily on world music literature and songs of peace and protest, but will not be limited to these genres, as the opportunity for performing interesting, beautiful, and artistic literature while sharing our passion for excellent singing is at the core of the choir. No experience is necessary, as we will be working on vocal technique, breath support, blend, harmony, and artistry at each rehearsal. Join us for an incredible weekly celebration of women and let's make our voices heard!

    Please  Note:  We have added a monthly option for those who cannot commit to a weekly rehearsal. The once monthly group will meet on the 3rd Monday of each month and work on a few of the songs from the choir's repertoire. We hope this will allow for more women to join our chorus of amazing voices!

    Taught by Kathy Moss
    Wednesdays, 11:00am-1:00pm, January 9 to February 27

    This class is open to all students who want to draw and paint from observation, and is appropriate for all levels. Learn observational drawing techniques while exploring materials such as pencil, charcoal, ink and ink wash, watercolor, oil painting, concepts such as positive and negative space, additive and subtractive mark making, color theory, and the picture plane. Students will be introduced to the works of old and new master artists through reproductions, while acquiring skills of seeing and drawing gesture, proportion, scale, weight, volume, and considering subject and narrative. Students will learn, and hone their skills in color mixing, value, and composition related decision making. All aspects of making a compelling picture will be discussed: e.g. shape, size, format, surface. Please bring your own drawing pad and materials.
