Adventures in Word & Image Afternoon

$124

with Jodi Paloni

Calendar Apr 2, 2019 at 3:30 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Note: The end date for this class listed in our Winter/Spring brochure was incorrect. The correct end date is 4/30.

Some say “April is the cruelest month…” but maybe not so cruel if you have something fun and engaging to look forward to. In this four-week series, we’ll delve into the work of fearless writing and image-making in the spirit of “creating with the brakes off.” Immersing in writing prompts, paint and paper projects, and simple assemblages will help us explore ways in which the written word may be embedded into art and how art can inspire us to write. 

Jodi Paloni is the author of the linked story collection, They Could Live With Themselves, a two-time finalist for the Maine Literary Awards and IPPY Silver Medalist. She has an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Basic Bird-Watching

$49

with Stan LeQuire

Calendar May 2, 2019 at 7 pm, runs for 6 weeks

This is an introductory course designed to help you feel comfortable and proficient in one of the USA’s most popular hobbies. The course assumes that the student has only minimal or no knowledge of birds, but desires to acquire skills to identify birds by sight and sound. Students will learn how to find, identify, attract and enjoy the birds of the Midcoast area. The last class session is a walk along a local trail which will help you practice your new, bird-watching skills. Recommended for class: a basic field identification guide to the birds of eastern North America and a pair of binoculars. These items are not required, but eventually, you may want to invest in these 2 items.

Stan L. LeQuire is a life-long naturalist, guide and outdoorsman. He enjoys introducing people to the splendors of Lincoln County. He also teaches a natural history course for adult education in the fall.
