Roped-In is an explorative compendium of movement and emotion while attached to a rope.  Throughout the 6 different original pieces performers will climb, swing, hang, spin and dance: across the floor, through the air and even on the wall. Suspension can give a sense of flying freely in the air. At the same time, attachment to a rope can be restrictive and confining. Through a mix of physical theatre, dance and clown techniques, these performers exploit the properties of a rope to express both the difficulties and the state of freedom, beauty and happiness that can come from a place of restraint. 

Roped-In is the creative result of intense collaboration between Kinetic Tapestry’s husband and wife team of Jaime Zayas and Vanessa Waggoner-Zayas with significant contributions from the talented dancing artists Sarah Svoboda and Mary Virtue. Jaime and Vanessa have been creating movement work together for 9 years and they present this full-on foray into the realm of rope work with humble anticipation.

“Reflective Accumulations,” an exhibit of paintings by Kansas City-based artist Grant Miller, will be on display in the Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School from Friday, April 7, through Wednesday, May 17. All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on April 7.  

Miller begins his paintings with an architectural grid and then builds on that initial structure through a chain reaction of controlled, determined layers. Once the angles and lines come together, the forms that exist within the gaps come forth creating a striking dichotomy. These fluid forms begin to take center stage in Miller’s work, while the initial structure that brought the effects together slowly recedes. Some of his works have between eight and 18 layers.

Introduction to Digital Photography

James Labonte

Saturday April 8, 2017 - 12:30pm to 3:30pm

Introduction to Digital Photography is the first class in a series of classes that take you from the essential basics that you need to master all the way to taking professional quality portraits.  In this first class you will learn all about the exposure triangle and how to "see" the light.  It is your first step to understanding exposure and getting you off of the full auto or "green square" setting on your camera.  All classes are hands on so bring your gear and be ready to learn.

BIO:

Hi!  My name is James Labonte and I will be your guide on your journey to becoming a better photographer.  I have been taking professional photographs for over 10 years and if it's one thing I have learned over the years is that we all have a desire to learn new things and to improve.

One way that I continue to educate myself is by teaching others.  By teaching others it forces me to stop and think about every little detail that goes into making a great photograph.  Many times I have an "a ha" moment when answering a student's question.  So I am learning right along with you...

I have been educated by some of the best in the industry, like Lindsay Adler, Scott Kelby, Joe McNally, Lou Freeman, Joel Grimes, James Schmelzer, Craig Lamere, and many more.  I belong to kelbyone.com which provides continuous online training, and attend many hands on seminars at Shutterfest annually.  I am constantly learning new techniques that I want to pass along to you...

Beginning Wheel Throwing

6 week class / 2hour / once a week

We will teach you everything you need to learn to make a pot on the wheel, AND… you’ll also gain the many incidental stress-relieving benefits of creating with clay. The gentle turning of the wheel, the centering of the clay and the single-minded focus needed to create pottery brings the potter into a calm, centered place themselves. It’s a terrific way to end a stressful day or start a new adventure. 

The Beginner Wheel class is designed for the absolute beginner looking for an introduction to the craft of wheel thrown* pottery. *(From the Old English word “thrawan”, meaning to twist or turn.) This class is also a good place for self-taught or long inactive potters who are looking for a refresher course in the fundamentals of wheel throwing.

Beginners, will receive an introduction to basic throwing techniques: centering clay, forming cylinders, bowls and plate forms. Glazing and surface treatment also covered.

For those who are comfortable throwing basic cylinder and bowl shapes, classes will focus on constructing more complex forms. Teapots, pitchers, covered jars, casseroles etc. will be explored. Students also work on mastering the more technical aspects of glazing and firing.
