Greetings Art Lovers:
After all the snow we are looking ahead to spring with visions of planting seeds in the garden, getting outside more, and perhaps trying something new. Have you noticed the workshops that Arts Mid-Hudson has begun presenting? Learning is a lifetime adventure – why not try to make an intricately patterned Pysanky egg in the Ukrainian tradition led by a teacher with that cultural background? Other workshops include professional development, for instance, how to build your practice of branding and marketing yourself if you are a creative worker. You will note that members receive discounts on professional development workshops. Watch our webpage for more workshops like these and join us for the creative journey.
This is the final weekend to catch, Songs for a New World, presented by Trinity Players at Cunneen-Hackett Theatre. This musical is a contemporary song cycle weaving characters and history together, illuminating the timelessness of self-discovery. Performances Friday, Saturday and Sunday – check details here.
