Los Alamos Friday Night: A Quilt of Stories: History, Myths, and Legends

6 – 7:30 p.m. at the Romero Cabin behind Fuller Lodge
In the isolation of the Plateau and the west, quilts were fashioned from bits of material carefully saved from worn clothing.  Each piece of fabric had a story. And so it is with history, from the fabric of people’s lives–their joys, sorrows, and dreams– stories are woven.  Travel back in time with Terry Foxx to understand a little bit of history of the West and what it was like to live in a log cabin, travel by foot, and not have the conveniences of modern technology: lights, running water, cell phones, and indoor plumbing.  Storytelling will take place at the Romero Cabin during the Los Alamos Friday night event.

Sunday Life Drawing at Fuller Lodge Art Center

Sundays 10am – 3pm (lunch 12:15 – 1)

Come join us to work from the model in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The Wednesday evening sessions give artists the opportunity to hone their skills depicting the human form in a variety of poses. Each class will begin with a series of shorter poses that focus on the figure in motion. We will then move gradually to longer poses at the end of the session. On Sundays, the focus is one long pose, for painting or detail work, and students have the opportunity to view the model from different positions. Both sessions are without instruction. Moderated by Ken Nebel. 

Wednesdays 6:30 – 9:30 pm
Fridays 9am – 1pm
Sundays 10am – 3pm (lunch 12:15 – 1)

No registration is necessary, and drop-ins welcome.
All levels welcome. No photography.
No class fee, but students split the model fee.
We provide easels. You bring the rest!

For more info call Ken at (505) 690 – 1715 or email kennebel@gmail.com.
