Portland Parks & Recreation Family Performing & Visual Arts Classes Family classes are designed for parents, guardians and children to interact and participate together. Our philosophy is to honor the child’s create impulses—focusing on process, rather than product. Visual art classes provide instruction in the use of art materials and techniques, encouraging 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 family classes. Once classes are full, we cannot accept extra students.

Being Your Own Publisher Ages 16 & Up The publishing industry is changing, and authors are taking note. Print on demand technology, e-books, and the rise of online bookstores have made self-publishing an alluring process to many. But is it right for you? This class offers authors insight into the risks and rewards of self-publishing and is specifically designed to give authors a clear picture of what the process involves. Open to writers of any form.

Riding the bike, reading, history, wine and cosmology/astronomy. Who are your influences? I don’t know if I have influences per se, but here’s a short list of a few authors/people I find interesting for one reason or another: Aldous Huxley, Tina Fey, Jean-Paul Sartre, Sylvia Plath, Charles Bukowski, Euripides, Samuel Beckett, Steve Martin, and David Ives. What are you working on now? Currently I’m working on what the next thing I should be working on is. The “pots on the stove” are the final edit of a novel, bringing a film script about competitive wine tasting to fruition, finishing an existential play about a Merman, and producing a full-length play, The Mirror Box. Why do you like teaching? Probably because teaching, or “being an assistant to discovery,” is an extension of the creative process; you get to figure out how to inspire and support others to achieve what perhaps they thought was impossible. And vice-versa, the classroom is not a one-way street. What is your specialty? Besides juggling chainsaws, I believe I write dialogue pretty gosh darn well.

Multnomah Arts Center Gallery Receives Total Makeover Thanks to Generous Support from Local Businesses, Community Members, & the Multnomah Arts Center Association During the past 30 years, the Multnomah Arts Center Gallery has showcased the artwork of over 300 regional artists, arts collectives, and group shows. In that time, more than 100,000 visitors have enjoyed the creativity of these emerging and established professional artists from the region. After 30 years of heavy traffic in the gallery, the Multnomah Arts Center Association, an allvolunteer nonprofit organization that supports the mission of MAC, made it a priority to renovate this popular gallery space into a state-of-the-art gallery that is beautiful, flexible, professional and displays a wide variety of art in different media. The gallery renovation is now well underway due to the lead support from SERA Architects, Mortenson Construction, and Cascade Acoustics, each committing to provide generous pro bono services and in-kind materials to make the renovation possible. Thanks to their collective leadership and vision, additional pro bono and in-kind support has been provided from Rosendin Electric, Fine Painting, Performance Abatement Services, Temp Control Mechanical, Viking Automatic Sprinklers, KPFF Structural and Civil Engineering, PAE Consulting Engineering, Solus Lighting, and Northern Illumination Company.

Key points about the MAC Gallery Renovation: +Total Value of Design, Labor, and In-Kind Materials: $118,300 +Approximate number of hours of donated time: 1,200 +In addition to the business community’s demonstrated support, over 100 community members have donated more than $10,500 +By converting to LED lights and advanced dimming controls, the energy usage in the gallery will be reduced by over 50% while providing far better quality and adaptability to different art media. +The completion date of this gallery renovation is scheduled for August 16.

Anyone else is considered a non-resident (NR) and will be assessed a NR fee. NR fees do not apply to drop-in activities. Non-residents who wish to register for PP&R activities may choose one of these options: • pay the additional 30% non-resident fee. • purchase resident status as either an individual or family for a period of three, six, nine, or twelve months from the date of purchase. Inquire about this option at time of registration. Non-resident passes are not refundable. Passes are activated at the date of purchase. Non-resident Pass prices: 3 Month Pass: Individual - $25 Family - $50 6 Month Pass: Individual - $45 Family - $90 9 Month Pass: Individual - $65 Family - $130 One Year Pass: Individual - $85 Family - $170 A family denotes a couple (married or domestic) or a single parent and their legal dependants living in the same residence. Note: As part of the FY 2013-14 budget PP&R will be updating its non-resident fee policy to better ensure that non-residents are paying fees equivalent to what City of Portland residents are paying through fees and taxes. The specific changes are not known at the time of this printing. Any changes to non-resident fees are expected to become effective for customers that register after August 31, 2013.
