Improv for the PeopleWhere: HQ, 315 E. Marion St.
When: Wednesday, March 13th
Most adults are scared of improv. Even trained actors. So why do kids have so much fun in improv class? Because they don’t know any better. Some of our biggest fears are things we used to do quite naturally as kids. Improv is simply a collection of children’s games organized around the idea of making people laugh.The secret lies in being spontaneous. We are always improvising. Each day is a series of off-the-cuff interactions with co-workers, family and friends, bakers, baristas and caterers. We don’t rehearse life. We improv the heck out of it.In this class, you will learn three basic concepts that will guide you to improv nirvana:
Peter Reeves isn’t just a delivery human. He teaches improv at Fulton Theatre and Stone School in Lancaster, acts on stage and screen and improvises most of his daily conversations.“Life is improvisation” –Tina Fey
- Always say “yes” and…
- Make your partner look good
- Say the first thing that comes into your head
Photo Transfer WorkshopWhere: HQ, 315 E. Marion St.
When: Thursday, March 21
Photo transfer, or solvent transfer, was developed by iconic artist Robert Rauschenberg. Rauschenberg first experimented with the transfer technique in the 1950’s. After soaking the printed image in a solvent, Rauschenberg placed the image face down on paper and transferred it with a series of hatch marks created by rubbing a dry pen nib across the back of the image. The results are edgeless units bound by the artist’s mark making.Lancaster artist and teacher Kathy Moss-Reeves has been using a similar process to create original art work for more than four decades. Join Kathy for this unique workshop and create a piece of your own on paper, copper, brass, wood, or other workable surface. The resulting picture transfers are otherworldly. They appear on the surface like gauzy memories from another time. They also make fabulous gifts!*Please bring a workable surface and at least two laser printed pictures or magazine/newspaper images (Color or B/W). Pictures that produce the best results have areas of contrast, light and dark, and no writing (transferred letters read backward!).
Friends/significant others invited. Only 20 slots available!
