Pelham, Ruth Meet the Artist! workshops and programs Literature- Authors,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
**Reduced fees available for multiple programs in one day or block booking with multiple libraries for the same day.** When children want to know if being an artist is a 'real' way to earn a living, or what it feels like to perform in front of hundreds of people, or what singing songs has to do with making a difference in the world, Ruth Pelham’s responses always serve as an inspiration for children. During this song-filled workshop, Ruth draws from her work as a songwriter, performer, recording artist, public speaker, educator, community organizer, and arts manager and conveys the message that the job of being an artist requires being good at one’s art form as well as in all of the skills that we learn in school--writing, reading, math, communicating, negotiating, problem-solving, and many more. This workshop can be geared to topics such as career development, the arts, writing skills, music and performance, making life choices, and others.

Crocker, Keith ARTFUL VISCERA - An Exploration of the Italian Horror film 1960 through 1980 History,
Media- Film,
Performing Arts- Other
The Italians reinvented the horror film between 1960 and 1980. Generally, the genre was frowned upon by the fascist movement of the 1930's, but once the war ended and Italy had a chance to get back on their feet, they ended up making up for lost time by producing some of the most frightening films ever to grace a movie theater screen. From the trend setting work of directors like Mario Bava (Black Sunday) to the misanthropic nightmares of Lucio Fulci (Zombie), Italian horror films continue to place their mark on the current crop of American made nightmare films. Join me for the ultimate history lesson on European trash cinema. Comes complete with a vintage memorabilia presentation plus a 16mm showing of a digest version of Horror Castle (1963). This program would be very popular with your younger teenage and college years patrons.

This program is an introduction to the art of dressage, as performed by the Spanish Riding School and Lippizaner Stallions of Austria.

They will learn moves such as the side pass, pirouette, flying changes, piaffe and passage. The history of the art will be taught using Margeurite Henry's book: The White Stallion of Lippiza. Students will be allowed to perform a KUR using classical music at the end of the program. Traveling along is Lilly, our miniature horse whom the children can meet and pet as the program finale. Dressage is the art of teaching horses to dance in harmony with themselves. It was originally developed by the Greek General Xenophon, as a means to train horses for war. Today it is performed both as an Olympic sport in the summer games and by those who wish to train their horses in the higher arts. The class will be conducted as a ballet class in a flat open area of the library. This program is suitable for the 2013 summer reading program.
