Shades of Nature with Teresa Breuer
Sat, Apr 9, 2016 until Sun, Apr 10, 2016 | 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Once you learn how to create one of these magnificent lampshades you will feel like you're out in the deep woods while you sit reading in your comfortable chair at night. The warmth and beauty of the light produced from the botanicals when the light is turned on is magical! This class is divided into two half-day sessions. The goal is to bring nature to life. You will create two lampshades using botanicals that can be found all around us in the Adirondacks, including cedar and ferns. These botanicals will be pressed, preserving their natural beauty. They can be admired only when the lamp is turned on and are hidden when the lamp is off. In addition to a shade, you will create two night-lights. All tools and materials will be provided - just bring your love for nature and some creativity.

Perfect Pictures Every Time for Beginners with Carl Heilman II
Sat, Apr 30, 2016 | 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Understanding photography basics is the key to taking control of your camera, and knowing you got the shot when you were taking it. If you would like to take your skill level from shooting in Auto to having full control over your camera, this intensive class is for you! A step by step PowerPoint presentation helps teach the basic principles of photography including: camera options and set-up, peripheral equipment, image exposure and histograms, and will touch on shooting for HDR, and working with motion, depth of field, and composition. The class is paced to allow time for questions and interaction, with about half of the day in the classroom experimenting with the cameras, and the other half spent in the field, practicing camera techniques and shooting options. A comprehensive handout will include all the major points covered in the presentation. While the class instruction is mostly landscape based, these techniques and principles can be applied to all photographic situations.

When the old Earl of Whitelingham dies, leaving debts in the millions and an estate about to foreclose, the family tries to save its future by doing what anyone would do: stealing a priceless (and hideous) painting and selling it on the black market. The only problem? Everyone thinks they’re working alone and no one knows which painting to steal. In just a single afternoon, countless identities are mistaken, crazy cats are hunted, paintings are set on fire (and maybe the cat too), and one accidental murder could save the day in this hysterical modern farce that will keep you laughing until the very end.
