They'll build confidence in their ability to effectively use music for storytelling, literacy skills, teaching curriculum and just plain fun!

The workshop is participatory. Cathy and Marcy will lead the group through a series of songs, stories, exercises and ideas that can easily be taken home or to the classroom. You will learn about song formats, ways to encourage listening skills, and ways to use music without actually singing or playing an instrument. You’ll also find some of your own musical strengths and receive tips on how to work on some of your weaknesses.

Included are ideas on making and playing homemade instruments, creative ways to use recorded music, increasing your repertoire, song leading for group singing and songwriting. Cathy & Marcy share their "tricks of the trade" that encourage full participation from an audience of children.

Over 5,000 shows in performing arts centers, schools, folk festivals, community centers, libraries and children’s festivals have given Cathy & Marcy the superb skills to deliver a show that is fun, wacky, energetic, and participatory and meaningful.

Cathy & Marcy won back-to-back GRAMMY® Awards in the Best Musical Album for Children category in 2004 & 2005. They produced and performed on “cELLAbration: A Tribute To Ella Jenkins”, bringing Pete Seeger, Riders in the Sky, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Mariachi Los Camperos and others together to honor Ella Jenkins in 2005.

Pastels with Addren Doss

March 14, 2015

The Road Less Traveled by Addren DossThe Pastel Landscape with Addren Doss
Saturday, March 14, times 9:00am-4:00pm
Tuition: $75
Materials: List provided
Age: 16+

In this landscape class for pastel students we will explore how to paint a landscape using a photo reference.  Photo references are convenient and many times necessary – but they don’t always give us the information we need.  We will be looking at several different ways to simplify the information in our photographs.  We want our paintings to communicate what we feel about a scene and not be a copy of the photo reference in front of us.

The day will begin with a discussion about composition and how quick value studies can make stronger paintings.  We will then create a number of value studies from several photos to decide what the subject matter for our painting will be.  Later in the morning Addren will do a short demonstration of a simple landscape.

The rest of the day you will be free to paint using all the methods you have learned from the morning session.  There will be plenty of help and encouragement at your easel from Addren throughout the afternoon.

SUPPLY LIST

Pastels** (CCSA has a limited number of pastel sets available for use):

  • Prisma Color Nupastels – set of 36 or 48

Sunday, March 29, 10:00am-3:00pm
Concert Saturday March 28, 7:00-9:00 pm
Tuition: $140
Level: Intermediate

In this session, I will explore a few ideas that can give your guitar playing a boost and make it more fun to boot.

Playing with a flatpick and fingerpicking both will be discussed, incorporating some basic music theory to raise your comfort zone on the entire  fingerboard. Being able to utilize harmonized scales, partial chords, and just knowing the distance between the notes of a chord gives more variety to what the guitarist can offer. These simple concepts are easy to use and sound great. Fingerpicks and thumbpicks are all welcome; personally-- I use just my fingers and occasionally a thumbpick when I really want to accent the bass.

For fiddle tune back up, I strive to enhance what the fiddle is doing and not overplay or get “in the way”. Mainly, I hope to inspire you and encourage you to appreciate and enjoy the guitar’s possibilities.

Bring your guitar, a recording device, and a flatpick, fingerpicks are optional.
