CITYWIDE RACIAL EQUITY GOALS AND STRATEGIES EQUITY GOAL #1 We will end racial disparities within city government, so there is fairness in hiring and promotions, greater opportunities in contracting, and equitable services to all residents.

EQUITY GOAL #2 We will strengthen outreach, public engagement, and access to City services for communities of color and immigrant and refugee communities, and support or change existing services using racial equity best practices.

EQUITY GOAL #3 We will collaborate with communities and institutions to eliminate racial inequity in all areas of government, including education, criminal justice, environmental justice, health, housing, transportation, and economic success.

WE WELCOME ALL

We welcome ALL races, ALL religions, ALL countries of origin, ALL ages, ALL sexual orientations, ALL genders, ALL abilities. It is the policy of the City of Portland and a core value of Portland Parks & Recreation, that no person shall be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination in any City program, service, or activity on the grounds of race, color, national origin, or disability.

SCHOLARSHIPS

City of Portland residents, regardless of age, who require financial assistance may apply for partial scholarships. Contact individual centers for information.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

PP&R classes, activities, rentals, and sports events may be canceled due to inclement weather, such as ice, snow, or extreme heat. Check with your PP&R facility for the most current information via phone or online at portlandparks.org. Some recreation programs may run as conditions and staff availability allow. Safety is a major factor in determining operations at each PP&R facility. PP&R facilities, our social media outlets, and our website will all feature operating information including opening and closing times. 2

OVERALL STRATEGIES 1. Use a racial equity framework: Use a racial equity framework that clearly articulates racial equity; implicit and explicit bias; and individual, institutional, and structural racism. 2. Build organizational capacity: Commit to the breadth and depth of institutional transformation so that impacts are sustainable. While the leadership of electeds and officials is critical, changes take place on the ground, through building infrastructure that creates racial equity experts and teams throughout the city government. 3. Implement a racial equity lens: Racial inequities are not random; they have been created and sustained over time. Inequities will not disappear on their own. It is essential to use a racial equity lens when changing the policies, programs, and practices that perpetuate inequities, and when developing new policies and programs. 4. Be data driven: Measurement must take place at two levels—first, to measure the success of specific programmatic and policy changes; and second, to develop baselines, set goals, and measure progress. Using data in this manner is necessary for accountability. 5. Partner with other institutions and communities: Government work on racial equity is necessary, but insufficient. To achieve racial equity in the community, government needs to work in partnership with communities and institutions to achieve meaningful results. 6. Operate with urgency and accountability: When change is a priority, urgency is felt and change is embraced. Building in institutional accountability mechanisms using a clear plan of action will allow accountability. Collectively, we must create greater urgency and public commitment to achieve racial equity.

CMC’s sequential curriculum for youth piano makes learning in a group setting a fun way to introduce this fabulous instrument, while getting “hands on” experience, making new friends and gaining skills! Sequential Classes: Piano Primer (year 1), then Beyond Basics (year 2), followed by Piano Laboratory. Continuing students, call the office (503-823-3177) to register. Clear Three-Year Course Curriculum: Students are equally matched for a successful group class experience. See the chart at right for details. Piano Foundations use books in the Faber Piano Adventures series (available at CMC). Progress Review: With the instructor’s guidance and approval, a student may repeat a term or advance. Consistent Schedule: During the school year, students continue at the same day and time unless repeating a term or skipping ahead. Recital Opportunities: Playing music is better enjoyed when shared! While not a requirement, these performances connect us with others and increase confidence.

COMMUNITY MUSIC CENTER

FRANCIS STREET SINGERS TURNS 50 There have been choirs at CMC since its founding in 1955, one called the Community Music Chorale at the Knott street location, and the Firehouse Chorale at the Woodstock facility. The Francis Street moniker was given to celebrate the spacious new facility CMC moved to in 1969. It was the conductor-director Mary Margaret Dundore who is remembered for bringing the community choir into its own at that time. Tracey Edson, the group’s current conductor, has lead and built the venerable group for two decades, tackling the masterworks of the genre such as the Brahms Requiem and Bach Magnificat, collaborating with student and faculty instrumentalists and soloists. We’ll have a special commemorative concert this year to celebrate the occasion. Stay tuned for details!

INSTRUMENTAL GROUP CLASSES AND ENSEMBLES FOR YOUTH AND ADULTS Groups are scheduled based on finding a common time where three or more students can be placed with their peers at their level. We meet each student in an audition (see below) and then assign students together in groups that we feel to be the best possible match of players and personalities. Chamber groups are a school year commitment and usually cannot be rescheduled. Day/time of groups is confirmed by mid-September. Once accepted into a group, the highest attendance standards are required throughout the year (excused absences only for emergencies). Students are expected to practice the music and take it to their private lesson instructor for assistance between classes. Chamber music is a team sport! Final Concert: Sunday, June 7, 2020 at 1:30pm. Other performance opportunities, including at least one master class, are also included, TBA.

AUDITIONS To ensure a good match for each student to a group we meet each student individually to ascertain the student’s musical and instrumental ability level, as well as general personality. We audition returning students as well as those new to the program. (Students from Summer 2019 do not need to audition.) For auditions, prepare a recently polished piece or etude that best represents your current level, and a scale. There is usually sight-reading at the audition, too. Audition Schedule: 15 minutes per student Wednesday, 8/28 4:00-7:00pm Saturday, 8/31 10:00am-2:00pm

SCHOOL YEAR 2019-20 PRIVATE LESSON INFORMATION How to Register 1. Submit your application • Due date is August 27 for returning students to receive priority placement. New students may register at any time until March 2020. Applications received after August 27 (new or continuing students) are processed after priority placement applications. We maintain a waitlist through April for students we cannot place in lessons by the start of fall term, and for those applying after the start of fall term; students are placed in lessons throughout the school year as opennings occur. • If applying for a scholarship, submit a separate scholarship form as soon as possible. • School Year registration covers end-of-September to early June (up to 33 weeks). Summer registration is separate. • When indicating your day/time availability, keep the following information in mind: (a) The more availability listed increases the chances of being placed for a lesson. (b) For young students (typically below age 10), indicate the time the practice-assisting parent and student can attend together. • Scheduling priority may be given to application in order received, so prompt form submission is advised. • Students who are returning from prior term and not expecting to change teachers may apply online. See our website for links. 2. Enroll in your required class • Private lesson students must concurrently attend a musicianship class. Register for these classes separately by indicating your choice on the paper application form or by calling the CMC office. Prompt registration is advised. Also see below. • Parents of new students are required to register for and attend a parent orientation nearest to the start of lessons. Choose orientation based on Suzuki Method or non-Suzuki. 3. Wait patiently for a call from the office confirming a lesson time. • It may take several weeks for us to schedule your lessons. • We maintain a waitlist through April for students we cannot place in lessons by the start of fall term, and for those applying after the start of fall term. 4. Confirm lesson time. • Your prompt reply to calls from us is appreciated, and helps us serve you efficiently. • Once confirmed, we will book your lessons in our computer system and send you a receipt with the lesson times and days. • If you need to change your lesson time, please complete a lesson schedule change request form at the CMC office. Program Requirements Practice Students should practice daily for at least as much time as their lesson length, complete any homework assigned by instructors, and progress in keeping with their ability to learn. Students who fail to progress to the best of their ability will receive instruction on how to improve practice habits. If progress is still not made, CMC may require the student & parent to sign and fulfill a practice-improvement agreement. A student may be dropped if not progressing. Musicianship Class The CMC private lesson program is more than just lessons. It is a sequential curriculum designed to foster well-rounded musicians. Students are required to enroll in, attend regularly, and do satisfactory work in an appropriate Skills class, Orchestra, Choir, Piano, or Chamber Music (fees vary; see catalog listings for prerequisites, special requirements, schedules & pricing). Beginners must choose Skills Foundations. Private Lesson Program students may take these courses at the reduced fee (see catalog for info). The musicianship requirement may be fulfilled by the student receiving comparable training elsewhere. This is documented on the application form. Attendance (UPDATED 2019) Because regular attendance is important, lessons and classes should not be missed except in unavoidable instances. As a courtesy to everyone an absence affects, the CMC office must be notified as much in advance as possible to allow for instructor schedule adjustments. Absences are classified as either Excused or Unexcused. • EXCUSED ABSENCE FOR ILLNESS - Once per term a student may be granted an Excused Absence from lessons due to illness, if the CMC office is notified of the absence in advance of the lesson. In this case a prorated credit for that missed lesson will be granted. Please inform CMC of the absence as soon as possible. • UNEXCUSED ABSENCE - Any cause not listed above. No credits or make-ups will be offered for Unexcused Absences. NOTE: A student may be dropped for more than two Unexcused Absences a term, three absences in a row, or four absences of any type during a term. Withdrawal Notice Once application is made, a full two weeks (14 calendar days) prior notice of withdrawal is required. Fees paid for lessons beyond twoweeks from notice will be refunded. This policy is different than the general PP&R withdrawal policy.


Suzuki or Non-Suzuki: Which method should I choose? String Lesson Program students at CMC have a choice of two distinct ways of studying their instrument in weekly lessons. The age of the student, as well as how much the parent is able to attend lessons and work with the student at home will help us make this choice with you. If you have questions, please call the CMC office (503-823-3177). CMC provides an orientation to parents choosing either method.

COMMUNITY MUSIC CENTER

NON-SUZUKI (TEACHER/STUDENT) METHOD This is the classic one-to-one approach to learning an instrument. The string player will practice every day at home between lessons on assignments given by the instructor. Likewise, parent/guardian involvement is not required, although parents of students younger than 10 are strongly encouraged to assist the child with at-home practice. Parent observation of lessons is usually optional and is highly recommended under the age of 10. At the start of lessons you may wish to discuss this with your instructor. New students choosing non-Suzuki lessons register for and attend an orientation in fall (see Parent Orientation on page 11).

SUZUKI (TEACHER/PARENT/STUDENT) METHOD This is a family approach to music instruction that creates a “learning triangle” between teacher, parent (or guardian) and student. The parent, who does not need to have prior musical training, assists the young students in their practice at home each day as assigned by the instructor. When the student is not practicing, the family listens to the recordings of the songs as much as possible to create the immersion that the method requires for the best learning experience. Music becomes like another language in the home. Parents are required to attend an orientation class in fall (see Parent Orientation on page 11). When filling out the application form on page 23, please list availability when the child and practicing parent can attend lessons together. Parents/ guardians are welcome to rent instruments from CMC to practice at home with their child—see below for details.

CMC has a limited number of string, wind, and keyboard instruments available for enrolled students to rent. Rental cost is $50 per term (prorated). Payment is due at the time of rental. Scholarships are available. Rental Process 1. Use our online form or call the CMC office (503-823-3177) to get on a waiting list for an instrument.* This should be done even if you are not yet confirmed for private lessons (youth), or if you are on a group class waiting list (adults). Youth private lesson students can get on the waiting list by checking the appropriate box on the application form (page 23). *Online form is at: communitymusiccenter.org (Click on “Instrument Rentals” on the sidebar.) 2. Once payment arrangements are made for private lessons/group class, set a fitting appointment with the instrument rental staff. If no fitting needed, pick up instrument Saturday, 9/28 between 10:00am and 4:00pm. 3. Meet with the rental staff. You’ll complete a rental agreement, make payment AND receive your instrument (if your size is available). If one is not available, you may choose to remain on the waiting list. *Preference is given to scholarship students, then youth, then adults. 25

FAMILY CLASSES FAMILY CLASSES

Family arts classes are designed for adults, and children to interact and participate together. Our philosophy is to honor the child’s creative impulses—focusing on process, rather than product. • Performing arts classes offer opportunities for children and their adults to participate together in an exploration of movement, song, and creative drama in a safe, joyful, and welcoming environment. • Visual arts classes provide instruction in the use of art materials and techniques and encourage each child’s individual style of visual expression. We recommend both adult and child wear grubbies as these classes can be messy. All materials are included. Clean-up is part of all MAC youth visual arts classes.

VISUAL ARTS Family Woodworking

Ages: 2-5 Hand tools and a real woodshop! How great is that? Encourage small motor development and hand-eye coordination in a safe environment. Build, create and alter foamular, wood, and other materials using various techniques. Learn proper ways to use tools safely and increase dexterity while having fun. For safety, closed toed shoes and long pants are required.

Clay Creations

Ages: 2-8 Can you construct a world with your fingers? Create shapes from nature or your imagination while exploring handbuilding and sculpting. Exchange ideas and inspiration from artists around you while giving form to your dreams. Add color to your creations and see how the kiln works its magic.

PERFORMING ARTS—DANCE

MULTNOMAH ARTS CENTER

Movement & Me

Ages: 2-4 Join your child to leap like gazelles and spin like tops while developing music appreciation, rhythm, coordination, and strength through introductory dance steps and movement. Build listening and socialization skills while discovering how fun dancing can be. Move to the beat!

Dance Around the World

Ages: 3-5 Celebrate dance! Explore simple movements from various cultures around the world while developing good technique, improved coordination and teamwork. Make new friends while discovering cultural customs and costumes that bring excitement to a variety of dances. Experience our world through dance!

PERFORMING ARTS—MUSIC Music and Movement for Children

Ages: 2-4 Together, experience the magic of music through activities such as songs, finger plays, movement, and the introduction of instruments. Promote bonding while stimulating creativity and self-expression. Melodies and tunes galore!

VISUAL ARTS Art Adventures

Ages: 1½-5 Fascinated by shiny, sticky and gooey stuff? The joy of creative thinking and self-expression are brought to life using materials such as paint, clay, naturals, glitter, glue, found objects, and more. Together construct art pieces that develop fine motor skills and enhance creative development.

FAMILY CLAY

Early registration encouraged. Not for solo participants. Does not include access to the potter’s wheel. Register BOTH the child and adult. Includes glazes, firings and three pounds of clay. Note: You may sign up for a single class only; however, it is necessary to sign up for a second class in order to have your work fired and glazed. (It takes approximately one to two weeks for your piece to dry and be fired before it is ready to glaze.)

Family Clay

Ages: 2 & Up Come as a family and create shapes from nature or your imagination while exploring handbuilding and sculpting. Exchange ideas and inspiration from other artists while giving form to your dreams. Add color to your creations and see how the kiln works its magic! Not for solo participants. Does not include access to the potter's wheel. Register BOTH the child and adult. 35

Ages: 18 & Up Cemeteries are not just peaceful and beautiful; they're rich historical sites. Portland's oldest cemeteries are full of fascinating stories. We will visit some of them to delve into the past as well as our own thoughts about loss, grief, and mortality. Our goal is to compose some honest writing that is grounded in an informed sense of place. There will be at least three field trips to local cemeteries (transportation and admission fees not included). All genres welcome.

Watercolor on Yupo―A Game Changer

Artist: Amber Stene

NEW! Figure Drawing in Watermedia

Ages: 13 & Up Hone your skills in figure drawing, but in a painterly fashion with walnut ink. Painting from a live model in a range of values gives ample time to capture the model's essence and anatomy. Learn about walnut ink's unique properties, combine it with watercolor accents for a distinctive aesthetic, and experiment with water-soluble graphite for painterly results with the control of drawing. Instructor demos cover the basics of working from a live model. See materials list online. Prerequisite: basic drawing experience. Each session includes a live model (nude, and occasionally clothed).

Ages: 13 & Up Discover the art of painting with transparent watercolor, but on a synthetic sheet that resists water. Why? Yupo is the most exciting game changer to happen to watercolor. Yupo's resistant surface creates uncommon results with a unique, contemporary look different from traditional paper. New to watercolor? Learn the basics of watercolor painting, but when painting on Yupo, you’ll have more flexibility to lift paint and capture highlights, or to rework areas while you hone your skills. Adept at watercolor? Learn how to create textures only a non-absorbent sheet can offer. Turn the challenges of painting on polypropylene into unique results. Yupo's velvety surface takes well to graphite, too. Other less-absorbent substrates will be explored. Basic drawing experience is helpful. Class time includes a lunch break. See materials list online.

The weaving studio has over 60 floor and table looms including an AVL compu–dobby, spinning and dyeing equipment, a wide selection of yarns for purchase, and an extensive library.

Please contact instructor before class if you have any questions.

TEXTILES STUDIO DROP-IN POLICY

MULTNOMAH ARTS CENTER

Currently registered weaving students may drop-in to the weaving studio at times other than during their registered class. Students may drop in anytime the center is open except during certain posted times. If you drop in during a class, please refrain from asking the instructor for help. For drop in, please sign in and out in the book at the front office.

Ages: 13 & Up Explore the ancient art of shibori – an elegant and accessible dye resist process. Shibori patterns made with stitching techniques range from simple and elegant to complex and awe-inspiring. Most patterns are achieved using little more than needles, thread and time. Learn to create and maintain a natural indigo vat, and achieve the best results from stitched techniques. Enjoy experimenting with this beautiful and gratifying process. Leave with samples and your own beautiful, indigo-dyed rayon scarf. Beginners welcomed. Class price includes a non-refundable materials fee of $20.

Knitting

Tips, tricks, correcting mistakes and anything else you will like to learn!

Spinning―Introduction

Ages: 13 & Up Have you dreamed of making custom yarns that match your vision of what you want for your next project? Soft and fluffy, tightly twisted, thick, thin, or perhaps both? What about creating your own colors? When you can’t find what you want in a commercial yarn, why not create your own? Explore an art form that is just as relevant today as it was 200 years ago. Learn basic wheel mechanics, a variety of fiber types, blending your own fiber, and how to turn fluff into yarn! Drop spindles and spinning wheels will be available for use, or you may bring your own. Price includes $25 materials fee that is nonrefundable when class begins.

SCHOOL YEAR 2019-2020 – FOR PRIVATE LESSONS How to Register 1. Complete this form and return it to MAC after reading program requirements below. This application covers October to early June. 2. Please wait patiently to be contacted by the office confirming a lesson time. This occurs about two weeks before lessons begin for continuing students and one week before for new students. If we cannot place a student, we will notify you as soon as possible. We maintain a waitlist through April. If your availability changes, please notify the office as soon as possible. 3. Upon lesson confirmation, pay tuition to complete registration. Payment plans, automatic payment deductions, and scholarships are available by arrangement. PRIVATE LESSON PROGRAM POLICY Thank you for choosing Multnomah Arts Center for your music lessons. Our goal is to make music a meaningful and enjoyable part of your life, and we believe that participation in the arts is essential to healthy individuals and communities. Thank you for your patience as we work to provide the best schedule for everyone in our community. MAC’s Private Music Lesson Program strives to provide high quality music education for as many dedicated students as possible. To this end, MAC makes the following requirements, which students should carefully consider before committing to lessons. 1. Practice Expectations Students should practice often. A good guideline is to practice each day for at least the duration of your lesson. Talk to your instructor about their recommendations for you. Instructors may require purchase of additional materials not included in listed registration fee 2. Attendance Requirements Regular attendance is important. Lessons should not be missed except in unavoidable circumstances. When a student must be absent, notify the MAC office as soon as possible. 3. Cancellations and Absences When Multnomah Arts Center cancels a lesson due to teacher illness, inclement weather, or other reasons, the teacher will offer the student a make-up lesson if possible, generally by extending the term one week. Sometimes the lesson may be made up by offering the student longer lessons to make up the time. If make-ups are not possible by the completion of the school year, a refund will be provided. When the student cancels or misses a lesson, the student is not eligible for a refund. The teacher is not obliged to make up the missed lesson. However, if the student has given fair notice with a good reason, the teacher may schedule a make-up at their discretion. 4. Withdrawals Once registered, the lesson time is reserved through the end of the school year (in early June). To withdraw before then, please notify the MAC office at least seven days before the next lesson, and a pro-rated refund of paid fees will be issued for the lessons that remain in the term. 5. Lesson Change Requests To request a change to your lesson day, time, length, or instructor, please complete the Lesson Change Request Form, available in the office. We will do our best to accommodate your requests. 80

SUMMER FREE FOR ALL

CONCERTS AND MOVIES Summer Free For All produces free concerts and movies in parks in collaboration with community partners. Each partner picks a park location, selects the movie and/or musical talent, fund-raises to support the event, and brings people together to celebrate summer! Building partnerships with community organizations allows us to enrich and explore the cultural fabric of our city. Learn more about how your community can host or sponsor a concert or movie at portlandoregon.gov/parks/sffa.

FREE LUNCH + PLAY Working alongside community partners and five school districts, Free Lunch + Play provides 100,000 nutritious meals for kids age 18 and younger during summer recess. This program also offers fun activities including sports and games, arts & crafts, and special events offered by visiting music groups, artists, sports teams, libraries, and more. Summer Free For All also brings activities to children in neighborhoods without parks or playgrounds through the Mobile Play program.

The Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center was built as a firehouse in 1910. In 1982, it was established as an arts center by Charles Jordan, Portland’s first African American Commissioner and Parks bureau director. The IFCC has served as a cultural home for Portland’s African American community since its founding, and has been vital to the creative life of many Portland artists. Charles Jordan

PAYMENT PLAN POLICY FOR ARTS PROGRAMS Payment is due at the time of registration. A payment plan may be set up at no extra charge. However, the first payment is due at the time of enrollment. Payment plans are to be established at site of activity (or online).

It is the customer’s responsibility to contact PP&R if the credit card number has changed, to check your receipts, and to keep your contact information up to date with PP&R. We do not send out notices for cards that have been declined.

Payment plans can make auto-payments on a credit card that must be valid through the date of final payment. An automated email is typically sent to payers 5 days before the card is to be charged.

Some term-length activities are rolled over from one term to the next; in these cases, the payment plan needs to be re-established by customer request after rollover (notice will be given).

A separate receipt will be created for each activity that has a payment plan to process and track payments more accurately.

Contact the site at which you registered if you have questions about your payment plan.

Payment plans without auto-payment or with non-standard due dates may require site supervisor approval and the customer accepts responsibility for making payments by the due date without a reminder from PP&R (note late fees below). Payments are calculated by dividing the total fee of the activity by the number of payments to be made. Payments will not necessarily match the per-class amounts, and payments in a payment plan may increase or decrease based on course cancellations, enrollee withdrawal, change of length of payment plan, or credits for activities.

90

LATE FEES • A late fee of $20 may be charged for a past due balance. • Accounts with payments past due may prevent students from enrolling in future activities. • Late accounts may be sent to a collection agency. • If financial circumstances make it impossible to meet the agreed upon terms of the payment plan, please contact the program supervisor or coordinator.
