briefs Storytelling, collage

Create a unique art piece that means something special to you in a mixed-media workshop offered by the Sun Valley Center for the Arts on February 10 and 11. Inspired by The Center’s current multidisciplinary project, Creatures: From Bigfoot to the Yeti Crab, this two-day workshop will explore ideas of transformational storytelling and personal myth. Students will combine collage, drawing materials, gesso, paint, transfers and found objects to transform an old photograph into a work of art where the subject is part human and part animal. Topics to be discussed include selection of materials, choice of adhesives and creative ways to attach found objects. The class will include demonstrations and lots of hands-on time and personal attention. Storytelling through Collage will meet at The Center’s Hailey classroom on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 10-11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The fee is $150 for Sun Valley Center for the Arts members and $200 for nonmembers. To register, visit, stop by The Center in Ketchum or call 208-726-9491, ext 10. Registration deadline is Thursday, Jan. 27. Thanks to generous donors, The Center is committed to making classes available to all members of the community regardless of their ability to pay. Please contact Sarah Kolash at 208-726-9491, ext. 21 for details about scholarships and teaching assistantships. Applications are due by the registration deadline.

Does snuggling save energy?


es! From a biological perspective, we actually call this huddling. There are several key factors affecting how quickly animals, including humans, lose energy to the air. One is our boundary layer— the thickness and texture of our fur, feathers—or down coat. Another key is the gradient between your internal temperature and the surrounding air temperature. If you are a chickadee and your internal temperature is 105°F. and the air temperature is -20°F., you are on the equivalent of a black diamond ski slope; on this steep gradient, energy exits quickly. The reason huddling works is that it addresses the last key variable—surface area. The more surface area you have exposed to the air, the more

area giving up energy to the air. Picture an orange: w—hen it is intact, the surface of the peel is the only exposed surface area. Imagine cutting the orange in half, however, and you expose a brand-new surface to the air, in addition to the previous area of the peel. When you huddle, you minimize your surface area by, in effect, bringing back together the halves of the orange. Many small mammals rely upon huddling to survive the winter. The scientific evidence is there. So, make like a mouse, grab your favorite friend, and snuggle up! Your checkbook will thank you when the next energy bill arrives.
