Nature Journaling Art Messalonskee W18

$50

with Kirsten Guyaz

Calendar May 30, 2018 at 5 pm, runs for 4 weeks

“The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” (W.B. Yeats)  All around us is the wider world - of nature - that often goes unseen and unheard.  Awaken your curiosity and come explore your journey in nature through art and words.  Using cloth-bound journals and a variety of media and subjects, focused on both the biological and artistic sides, you will create beauty as seen through your eyes.  Various found objects - and please bring your own finds - will be used for contour drawing, cyanotypes, prints, sketches, poems, and more.  We will journey outdoors for a portion of the time, as weather permits.  Ages 17 and up are welcome.  A $10 material fee is payable to the instructor at start of class.  Limit 12 students.

On Your Feet! Broadway in Boston W18

$119

with Jane Lee

Calendar Apr 21, 2018 at 7:30 am, runs for 1 week

From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation at the very top of the pop music world. But just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything.

On Your Feet! takes you behind the music and inside the real story of this record-making and ground breaking couple who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet.

Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots), with choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) and an original book by Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman). On Your Feet! features some of the most iconic songs of the past quarter-century and one of the most inspiring stories in music history.

The bus will depart from the Elm Plaza Shopping Center parking lot (closest to Main Street and in front of K-Mart) in Waterville at 7:30 a.m. and will make another pick-up at the West Gardiner Service Plaza at 8:00 a.m. After a “stretch-your-legs” break in Kennebunk we should arrive at Quincy Market at around 11:30 a.m. for some shopping and lunch on your own. We will then attend the 2:00 p.m. matinee at the Boston Opera House with our seats located in the mezzanine section!

We will head back to Maine after the show and after a “pit-stop” in Kennebunk and drop off in Gardiner, we should return to Waterville by approximately 9:00 p.m.

No refunds will be made after March 12, 2018. Fee includes transportation and theater ticket. You are expected to pay for your own meals.

Thinking Outside the Box W18

$11

with Charles Lakin

Calendar May 3, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

In this extremely informative class we’ll start by talking about the legal documents everyone should have in place, then cover planning ahead, writing things down, and having a conversation with the family about those plans. That will lead into a Q&A guided by your questions. We can talk about funeral options, home funerals, green cemeteries, alkaline hydrolysis, family burying grounds, scattering ashes, filling out the paperwork, whatever you want to know. We’ll share stories. I’ll bet that you’ll even laugh sometimes. Chuck Lakin is a woodworker and home funeral educator, whose interest in this topic came from his experience at his father’s death. He wanted to be a part of what happened after the death, but didn’t know what to do, and missed out. Now he knows and wants to share that information.
