The Director's Box Dear Friends, I am thankful for all the support and votes of confidence in the good work that we do here, whether by taking another class or making a donation. Our gallery (page 41) is a fabulous example of our most recent improvement that could not have happened with support from the community. We already have 50 artists signed up for our Winter Arts and Crafts Sale (see ad page 37) happening December 5-7. Consider supporting local artists and MACA by attending, or make a donation online or in person and help us continue to grow! Happy holidays to all,

Michael Walsh, Executive Director

Portland Parks & Recreation Family 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.

Literary Arts Saturday Workshops

New! The Lyric Essay Ages 18 & Up The lyric essay borrows tools from our friends the poets—compression, elevated language, and metaphoric leaps—to pare away the connective tissue found in other, longer essay forms. Lyric essay talks around its subject, looking at it through multiple prisms, spiraling back on itself and not necessarily ever coming to a conclusion. In a certain way, the lyric form is perfect for the way our 140-character world has evolved. Come try this simple and yet challenging form. 416957 Th. 6:30 - 9 pm. Jan. 9 – 23 $62 [3 classes] Kate Carroll deGutes New!

Mar. 6 – 20 $62 [3 classes] Kate Carroll de Gutes New! Sweet, Sour, Bitter, Salty, & Umami—Writing with Flavor & Zest Ages 18 & Up Interested in expanding your voice?

We’ll consider the palates of established writers and try to map out our own. Experimenting outside of our comfort zone will lead us to work that hits all the flavor receptors, leaving both writer and reader satisfied. Writing will be mostly done in class while readings will be assigned as homework. Price includes $6 materials fee for flavorful snacks. 417213 Fri. 10:00 am - 12:30 pm Jan. 24 - Mar. 14 $150 [7 classes] No class February 28 Judith Pulman
