Shoot The Moon Theater Company opens its 2018 season with a production of “The Glass Menagerie” at the Hooker-Dunham Theater, Friday through Sunday, May 4-6, and Thursday through Saturday May 10-12.
This 1944 memory play that established Tennessee Williams as a major literary voice continues to be a staple in the repertory of most theater companies, including regular productions on Broadway. But artistic director Josh Moyse admits the choice is uncharacteristic for Shoot The Moon, which has forged its reputation on original works and literary adaptations
“It almost feels like cheating. I turn the page and the words are already there,” says Moyse.

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is excited to host an Artist Talk with Matt Brown on Saturday, April 21 at 5pm. Brown will be discussing his current exhibit “Conversations with Color Woodblock Prints”, on display at Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts through May 6. The talk will include a demonstration by Brown of the Japanese hanga method of printmaking used by Hokusai, Kunisada and Hiroshige, a technique in which each print is created entirely by hand using water and pigments applied to multiple carved wooden blocks. One woodblock corresponds to one color within a print, and each is transferred to paper by a small hand-held baren.
“Conversations with Color Woodblock Prints” features over 40 prints, with many new pieces, as well as watercolor and pencil studies, working proofs and progressive states, providing viewers a glimpse into the artist’s continuous dialogue with his imagery and materials. Often changes made over several years create subtle, or dramatic, re-imagining of Brown’s initial vision.

Hello, my name is Jason Alden and I invite you to visit The Drawing Studio, a creative workspace for artists, students and families. As a life-long lover of drawing, I offer this space as an encouragement to individuals to explore their creative natures, independently or in community. All are welcome.
The Drawing Studio is fully equipped with drawing and water-based art materials, paper, easels, still life collections and a wonderful art library. We have a coffee and tea bar and windows overlooking the Whetstone Brook.
You may work independently or with instruction. I have many years experience with drawing, painting and color theory and am happy to help you as much as you need.

So begins the song, which begins the story, which begins the adventure: One day, something drives Isidor from out of his little grey existence. His cheek runs away, and Isidor must search around the world to find it again: a world of color and beauty, as well as loneliness and even danger.
Isidor’s Cheek is performed on a revolving table filled with all the details of Isidor’s miniature world: from his shabby grey house to a forest of apple trees, through an unfriendly city, across a sea of turtles and barracuda, into the smallest circus in the world. The table revolves to bring Isidor home again and to transform his house, his garden and indeed his whole outlook on life. Isidor himself is barely 5 and 1/2 inches high (14 cm), an appropriately little hero for a small story with a big heart.
We love wandering the globe
Paris, Nepal, Russia,
Cairo, friends in Santiago, Chile,
canoeing down the Amazon,
hanging out in Guatemala,
points North, South and
however the wind spins.
How can the items in our everyday life be used as a gateway to play and our inner child as we unzip our creativity?

So, I did everything fine but got messed up by the submit/save/draft. Maybe we can make it just submit?
If you are an intuitive genius with color then I would love to talk with you but you likely don’t need to take this workshop. If you are NOT, this will help..
