Drawing Better


with Kim Diment

Calendar Nov 13, 2021 at 10 am

Kim Diment, nationally renown artist and owner of Main Branch Gallery, is offering a 1-day basic drawing class for secondary school students and adults. The morning session, 10:00 to 12:00, will be an introduction to several techniques to teach anyone to draw. Those who already know will use these techniques to improve their skills.

During the afternoon session, 1:00-4:00pm, the students will be exploring graphite, and working on individual pieces using subject matter of their own choice. By the end of class, students will have the skills to complete their work.

Students should bring an ebony graphite pencil, a mechanical pencil, and black and white subject or reference photo(s). Grab lunch or refreshments during break at local restaurants.

Intro to Improv Theater


with Chad Patterson

Calendar Jan 20, 2022 at 6 pm, runs for 7 weeks

Looking for something new and exciting to start your new year? Tired of being cooped up in the house? Have you ever thought you were quick on your feet? Have you always wanted to be onstage but didn't think you had the time or the ability to memorize all of those lines? Well, the Artisan Village may have the perfect answer to the winter blahs. INTRODUCTION TO IMPROVISATIONAL THEATER:IMPROV!  

Local actor and radio personality Chad Patterson will draw on his twenty years of performance experience to teach the art of Improvisational Theater.  To be part of this cool new class all you need is to be 14 or older, have an open mind and be a willing participant. 

This is a seven week class beginning January 20 that culminates in a performance for the public in March. If you really enjoy the class it could lead to  becoming a member of our new Improv Troupe.

Worried about memorizing lines? Don't. Improv is like life - completely unscripted.
