Thursdays, November 9, 16, 30; December 7, 14 & 21 • 1:00 - 3:00 pm · Station Community Room
Register using code HSA291
In this course, we will cover drawing the basic head (proportions), creating the illusion of solid form with value (light and shadow), painting a portrait in a black and white value study and then converting it to a color value study. To facilitate a better understanding of simple steps to follow when creating a portrait, Anne will demonstrate each step of the portrait process before allowing students to work on their own. We will all be working on the same portrait which Anne will supply. This class requires prior watercolor and drawing experience. Materials needed: Good quality watercolor paper, professional grade watercolors, a variety of *watercolor brushes (various rounds from size 2 to 12), pencil, eraser and a tracing paper pad. Also needed is a water container and paper towels. (*No Artist Loft, please)   Registration required. HPL cardholders only.

Verdi & Puccini: The Epitome Of Italian Opera
Sunday, November 12 • 2:00 pm •Auditorium
Register using code HMA573
James J. Kolb, PhD, presents the historical context in which opera blossomed in Italy in the 19th century and assesses the impact of these composers on the operatic form. When people think of opera, first and foremost Italian opera comes to mind, particularly the work of Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) or Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924). Two of the three most frequently performed operas are Verdi’s Aïda and Puccini’s La Bohème (the third is Bizet’s Carmen). Their work spans nearly a century, with at least two dozen of their works in the standard repertory of most of the world’s opera houses.   Registration required. Open to all.
