Linda Howard’s ART SKILLS CLASS:
remember—-If it’s worth painting, it’s worth planning.
Learn how to see and simplify the visual so you can create strong vibrant compositions that
you will really enjoy. We will be doing lots of hands on exercises that you can take home
Small pallet to mix on
Paper towels (Viva no pattern) or an old cotton sheet, cut in to small pieces.
I usually bring a small grocery bag for garbage
Regular pencil and a charcoal pencil for quick sketching.
* Sharpie RED and BLACK
Odorless mineral spirit ( I like Gamaol ) Just something ODORLESS.
#4 flat Bristle brush
One sturdy support to tape down your 9 x 12 paper (I supply paper) We have
extra supports if you need to borrow one.
Our focus in this class will be working in gray values from light to dark.( No need to bring
your paint colors)
Light allows us to see colors on an object—-take away the COLOR and
what you see are values.
Black and white oil paint so you can mix your grays
( I am bringing my grays that are in different values, in case to try them)
If you are using watercolor , just bring Panes Gray or Black .
I think an opaque color will give better coverage. Bring in your usual supplies.
Please bring in an example of an artist’s work that inspires you. What is it about
the art that draws you to it?
!!!!!!!THIS CLASS STARTS AT 10.00 SO PLEASE COME EARLY TO SET UP.!!!!!!
See you there. Linda
We are also excited to add to our Arts Council group a quilt guild. Please watch the website for more upcoming information and schedules of workshops and quilt shows.

HIGHLAND TEEN CHIMES CHOIR
We are now filling spots for our 2016 Fall/Winter Highland Teen Chime
Choir. Spots are limited, so we will fill our group in the order that
calls or emails are received.
Come RING with us. Chime choir is open to kids 12-16. Previous piano
lessons or music experience are helpful, but not required.
To reserve your spot, call Paige at 801-830-0927, or email
Hand chimes are laid out like piano keys, with each person responsible
for just the few notes in front of them. Hand chimesoffer a unique
opportunity to learn music and teamwork together. While each ringer has
only certain assigned notes, he or she must learn to depend on, and be
dependable to those who ring all the other notes! Students learn to feel
rhythm, timing, watching a director, sensing movement and listening
carefully. There is no instrument to rent or buy, and no outside
practicing required, since the chimes cannot come home with the
students. Every ringer is vitally important. Students must commit to
being at rehearsals and performances on time.
We will rehearse at the Highland City Arts Building,
Mondays 3:30-4:30, starting August 29.
There is an *$**80****participation****fee****per****semester, ($70 for
each additional sibling) plus a $15 registration fee due at the time of
HIGHLAND COMMUNITY CHOIR
We are pleased to announce the formation of a new Highland community choir, Highland Choral Arts. We have been fortunate to enlist the talents of Cathy Jolley, a renowned conductor. This will be a yearlong choir with performances in the spring and Christmas season, with adjournment over the summer months.
Practices will be held at the Highland Community Center (old city office building, 5378 W 10400 N, Highland, UT 84003) Tuesdays from 8-9:30 pm. A brief voice check will be done with each member to determine range, choir suitability, and section assignment. You will NOT need to come with a prepared piece.
This will be a non-profit choir with yearly dues of $100 to offset music, venue rental, accompaniment, and conducting costs. We anticipate a choir of up to 80 members.
Our first practice will be March 1 at 8 pm with voice checks starting at 6:30 pm. Please sign-up for a voice-check time at this link.
