Join Gary Finelli for Exploring Adobe After Effects
Tuesday, May 18, 6 to 7 pm via ZOOM. $20
There’s so much you can do to make pictures come alive with computer programs. In this demonstration class, Gary will demonstrate how to use greenscreen in movie making and movie special effects with the Adobe After Effects program. Better than any online tutorial, as students will be able to ask questions during the demo. Once you see how it works, you can decide if it’s for you.

Wednesday, May 12, 19, and 26, 2 pm to 4:30 pm. $120
What a great time of year to explore the colors of early summer in pastel. David Lesako will lead the class in capturing the beauty of the landscape at select locations in beautiful Columbia County.

Join Tim Ebneth for an Artist Talk
Monday, May 24, 6 to 7 pm via ZOOM. $5
At the height of COVID, when it got warm enough and we thought about doing classes outside at the School, Tim didn’t balk. He wanted to get outside and get creative. His abstract mixed media classes were a huge hit. We’re so fortunate to have him on the faculty of the Art School. So what makes Tim tick? Find out at this Artist Talk – and learn about his approach to different styles and mediums.

Join Each Other for the Art Book Discussion Group
Tuesday, May 25, 6:30 to 8 pm via ZOOM. Free
Written in 1910, Wassily Kandinsky’s slim but powerful book has intrigued and inspired generations of artists. In it he defines the three types of painting; impressions, improvisations and compositions, exploring where each originates and is defined in the human experience. This and so much more make for a fascinating read – and what will be a lively discussion. Buy the book at the Chatham Bookstore for a 10% discount. Participants must register even though there is no charge.
