Drawing Without Tears Using a Camera Lucida

Needlecraft

Do you envy people who can draw? Wish you could? In this class, we will use a simple child’s toy Camera Lucida (Crayola Sketch Wizard) in the way that many art historians believe the renaissance artists used newly available lenses and curved mirrors to create some of their greatest masterpieces. In class, we will work from photos, either on paper or viewed with a smart phone or tablet. The camera lucida projects a ghost image of the photo onto your drawing. You then trace the important features and go on to complete the drawing. In class, we will discuss line, shading and blending techniques, composition and other artistic considerations. There will be a $20 materials fee, payable to the instructor at the first class, for which you will be provided a Sketch Wizard toy. (If you already have one, bring it to class, and the fee will be waived.)

Dear Senior Program members:

It is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from St. Louis Park Community Education. I will work through June of 2020—the end of the “school year.” I’ve enjoyed being the Community Education Director since I started in September of 2010. Many of my most joyful memories center on Lenox and our Senior Program participants. I’ve gotten to know many of you over the years and it has enriched my experience in St. Louis Park. In fact, my mother started participating in programs at Lenox even before I began working for the district. I can’t count the number of lifelong learning classes she took. She also took exercise classes and attended the Ballroom Dance every week for years. I know firsthand how much joy Lenox brings to people. My mom is in assisted living now and can’t get to Lenox like she used to but I keep her up to date with the goings on. While I’ll be leaving my employment, I’ll still come around every now and then. Lenox offers so much to the community and I’m a lifelong learner. Maybe I’ll see you at a class! My best to all of you. Lisa Greene There will be an open house for Lisa Greene on Thurs., June 25 from 3 – 6 p.m. in the Lounge at the Lenox Community Center. Join us to celebrate the years of service Lisa dedicated to St. Louis Park Public Schools, Community Education and the Senior Program.

Lenox Foundation/Center News Senior Program Advisory Council

Not too long ago I was in a Waiting Room and on the wall across from me was something I found very interesting and would love to share the message with all of you. The project was entitled ONE POSITIVE ACTION. I read the information and what it said was if EACH of us took just ONE positive action think of how it would affect us and the rest of the world. They then invited people to fill out the form asking what action you would do. Most of the posted responses were more personal but still would affect that person and those around them. I saw many items that were going to have a benefit for ALL of the world. I will share them … Stay positive, eat less sugar, plan to get more sleep, be on time, consider other people's actions, spend less time on my cell phone, stop eating junk food, exercise three times a day, watch several news channels, read a book, plan my meals, fasten my seat belt, smile more, control my temper, meditate, eat more fruits and veggies, get healthy, get organized, work out, try yoga, paint, take classes purely for fun, give thanks, meet new people, volunteer, go to church, travel, bake, praise people and lastly go above and beyond. I left that appointment and stopped for lunch at an Asian Restaurant and my fortune cookie said … At the end of each day, think “what has this

day brought me. And what have I given it?” You are probably wondering what does this have to do with me? If each of us would examine ourselves and come up with our own idea to the question of … ONE POSITIVE ACTION how would that affect the world around you? You have the power to change things if only one thing at a time. What a better world we would have to live in. We get stuck in a rut and find nothing positive inside of ourselves. But we can change that and by changing that we will change our world around us and wouldn’t that be wonderful. There are thought producing things all around us. Billboards, newspapers, people, mail and even our chocolate candies have messages like … When life isn't going right, go left. A smile is the quickest way to brighten a room. Don’t wait for sleep to start dreaming. And just one word … Be(you)tiful. Be the change that helps someone else and yourself. Continue to do that each day and: YOU will have indeed made ONE POSITIVE ACTION! And it will result in another positive action. Birdie Elkofska Chair, St. Louis Park Senior Program Advisory Council

North Memorial Health Connect

North Memorial Health Connect is a medical alert service that provides products that call for help when someone has an injury, medical event or safety issue. North Memorial Health Connect offers cellular and landlinebased services and serves customers who are at risk for falls, diabetic customers who can’t feel their feet or legs, and customers with COPD and heart conditions.

The greatest breakthrough in senior care? Mom’s cozy cottage. We help aging parents stay at home, whether they’re dealing with Alzheimer’s, arthritis or anything in between.

Events are monitored and reported aroundthe-clock, and automatic fall detection services call for help in the event of a fall. North Memorial Health Connect products are also registered by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
