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.
Saturday, March 31st public performances at 11 AM and 2 PM
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?

PUTNEY- A crankie is an old storytelling art form that has recently become popular again. A long illustrated scroll is wound around two spools and set into a box with a viewing window. The scroll is hand cranked, the unfolding story narrated, sung or just accompanied by music. This December Sandglass Theater is holding a crankie fundraising celebration with events including performances, a crankie building workshop and an online auction of crankies built by local artists.
