Apply to attend a “Making Comics” workshop with Graphic Artist Lynda Barry


Cornerstone Arts Week is very happy to offer students a rare opportunity to attend one of Lynda Barry’s famed creativity workshops. A limited number of CC students will be accepted on a competitive basis to participate in a hands-on workshop titled Drawing Words and Speaking Pictures: This Mysterious Thing We Call Comics, to be held on Friday, February 2 at 1 p.m.

Workshop description:

Lynda Barry leads a lively drawing jam for anyone who is interested in making comics. You don’t need any artistic ability to be part of this class, but you must be willing to draw bravely. We’ll be learning fast drawing techniques that anyone can do to create instant characters, story lines, and the spook-house kind of excitement that comes about when people who don’t know each other get together in a single room and suddenly have to start making pictures together.

Lynda Barry bio:

Creator of the comic strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek, Lynda Barry is widely credited with expanding the literary, thematic, and emotional range of American comics. She has published over twenty books, including Picture This: The Near-Sighted Monkey Book, What It Is, and The Good Times Are Killing Me, which was adapted into an off-Broadway play.

************To apply for the workshop: applications available at the Worner Desk; email your answers to the Application Questions below to Jane Hilberry (jhilberry@coloradocollege.edu) by the last day of Block 4. ************

Do not apply unless you are free and can commit to attending on Friday February 2 from 1-3 p.m.

An introduction to Street Dance History and Hip-hop Culture and taught by a renowned choreographer, dancer and street dance historian Rennie Harris. A pioneer in Hip-hop and street dance, Rennie is noted for bringing these dance styles to the concert stage. The course covers the geographic history of prominent East and West Coast street dance styles otherwise known as Hip-hop. Students will also discuss Street and Hip-hop paradigm shifts and will leave with a fundamental knowledge rooted in a theoretical structure that springs from the African Diaspora. With an emphasis placed on the social, political and economic environment in which it was fashioned, we will identify Hip-Hop’s pioneers and innovators and define the terminology and codification of West and East Street dance styles. Dr. Harris will teach the class using a traditional African pedagogical method-story telling to contextualize particular movement vocabulary and aesthetics of Street dance and its history. Questions?

If a man mistakes his wife for a hat there must be a reason. Is he mad? The moment we lay aside this easy assumption we face a real mystery***
‘Romantic Neurologist’ Oliver Sacks’ extraordinary best seller ‘The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat” becomes a play or a ‘theatrical research’ adapted by Peter Brook who says: “.we all have a brain and we think we know it. But the moment we go inside, we find we are on another planet.this is the valley of astonishment” ***A truly original play about people with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations but who remain extraordinarily human***
ALL WELCOME to Cornerstone Friday 5.00pm for the last PLAY READING GROUP of 2017 with extra-special-year-ending..FREE PIZZA & POP for ALL!
