Jazz had an incredible impact on the visual arts during the twentieth century. Delighting in the jazz performances of the Albert Ammons Trio directly influenced Piet Mondian’s painting “Broadway Boogie Woogie.” Through listening to the various styles of jazz as we examine representative art, we will explore the parallels and connections between the two modernist forms. Starting with a brief discussion of the collaboration between Wassily Kandinsky and his theories of sound and color and Arnold Schoenberg and his modernist atonal music, we will progress to the development of the basic styles of jazz including ragtime and blues and proceed to New Orleans Dixieland, Swing, Bebop and Fusion, as we identify similar aspects of American and European Abstract painting. Included will be jazz greats from Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong to Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and John Coltrane; as well as the contributions of George and Ira Gershwin and Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. Artists include Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Deborah Remington, Norman Lewis, Alma Thomas, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Stuart Davis and Romare Bearden. American modern artist Abraham Walkowitz, a contemporary of photographer Alfred Stieglitz, said, “Abstract art is a universal language, and dwells in the realm of music with equivalent emotion. Its melody is attuned to the receptive eye as music is to the ear.” In the course of our six-week journey together, we will swing to the “Fascinating Rhythm” of music and art.

It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again: A Julia Cameron Journey, Part 2 Each of us is creative and has something meaningful to share with others. In her recent book, It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again, based on her groundbreaking The Artist’s Way, Julia Cameron explores creativity in midlife and beyond. Retirement can be a richly-rewarding experience, a time to revisit previous dreams, begin new projects and rewrite our futures. In Part II of this course, we will focus on the remaining six lessons, chapters seven through twelve, as we continue to kindle the creative spirit through four basic practices: daily morning pages, weekly artist dates, twice-weekly solo walks and a weekly in-class-guided process to trigger and record memories that could develop into a memoir written in manageable chunks. Julia Cameron says all it takes to rediscover creativity are “passion, commitment and the courage to be a beginner.” Each class meeting will include time for sharing experiences, goals and individual journeys to nurture personal creativity and inspire others. 17624 1/25/2022 - 3/1/2022 6:30 - 8:30PM 6 ses Tu John Online; Zoom $129

We’ll work through the steps of reupholstering by removing the old fabric, adding new foam (if necessary), sewing the piping and seat cushion and applying the new fabric.

The first session will cover removal, pattern making, addition of foam and making your own piping. The second session will cover sewing the bottom cushion (and any other sewn details) and re-upholstery of the remaining surfaces. Prerequisite: basic sewing skills. Please note, a chair with button tufting is much more advanced and will require an additional long needle tool.

Race and You: For Your Consideration

Introduction to Yoga Philosophy There is much more to yoga than the physical poses.

This course is open to all. Handouts will be provided. You will walk away with a solid understanding of the eight limbs of yoga and of the Sage Patanjali.
