FOUND OBJECT ART AND COLLAGE WORKSHOP

FOUND OBJECT ART AND COLLAGE WORKSHOP

Make your memories last a lifetime. Bethel Woods invites teens 14 to 18 to a FREE Found Object Art and Collage Workshop on Saturday, July 15, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with artist Marc Switko. The event, which is part of Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Project Identity: Sessions, will be held at Downtown Barn, 14 Darbee Lane, in Liberty, NY.

Participants are encouraged to bring a few small objects or trinkets that have special meaning to them; a selection of objects will also be provided. Teens will create a keepsake of favorite memories using the objects.

This fun day of visual art creation includes a show-and-tell of objects brought by participants, learning collage techniques and creation of original artwork. The day concludes with a group show.

Marc Switko, fascinated with pop culture as a child, studied music, wrote, read comic books and skateboarded. Before attending Cornell University to study nutritional sciences he already performed and wrote as a member of numerous rock and roll bands at dive bars throughout Sullivan and Ulster counties.

Switko then moved to Albany, NY and began publishing reviews as the book critic for a successful literary magazine, The Albany Review, under the direction of Editor-in-Chief Theodore Bouloukos II. It was here he got his chops as a professional writer. The Review eventually folded and Switko left for New York City. There he began writing professionally for the Art publications of Far East under the editorial tutelage of Dian Hanson, now editor for art book publisher Taschen, based in Cologne, Germany.

Project: Identity provides opportunities for regional teens to engage in the arts while cultivating skills for college, career and civic life in a social and creative environment. Each installment of Project: Identity focuses on a specific art form and works to inspire imagination, innovation and professionalism within its young participants, fostering success in future endeavors.

Downtown Barn is located at 14 Darbee Lane, Liberty, NY 12754.

Maple Weekend Sugar House Tours & Hike

  • Google Calendar ICS

The Catskills excels in producing world-class maple syrup, and this is the time of year when the sugar houses throw open their doors to the public and provide tours and tastings, while the sap is being boiled in their evaporators. So come up, grab a rental house, check out the sugar house, and have a great weekend Upstate. We'll even throw in a 20% discount on a rental in Sullivan County if you book and stay before the end of March. Just use CODE: MAPLE20 when you book online or call in your reservation.

We're delighted to recommend our neighbors at Catskill Mountain Sugar House, the only organic producer in Sullivan County, for their sugar house tour, from 10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday, March 21 & 22, or, if you have a bit more time, a hike or more likely, a snow shoe, through the trails on the 800-acre maple farm, with Lisa Lyons, of Morgan Outdoors in Livingston Manor.

Participants in the hike will meet at the Catskill Mountain Sugar House at 2:00pm, to witness tree tapping and sap boiling in their cutting-edge facility (which happens to include some incredibly scenic acreage).

For more information, visit Morgan Outdoors's webpage for details on the hike, and Catskill Mountain Sugar House's details on their open house, which will take place again on March 28 & 29.

Here is a link to the Maple Syrup Directory, which includes a list of producers, many of whom will likely have open houses.
