Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present an evening of traditional and contemporary Celtic music featuring high energy bagpipes/fiddle/guitar trio Cantrip and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Emerald Rae at Next Stage on Friday, April 21 at 7:30 pm.

Conscious Painting Using Oils or Pastels with Stephanie Birdsall

This workshop is about learning to put on your canvas or paper only what you choose to be there in a very deliberate and conscious way. This requires a slowing down, learning how to really see what you are wanting to paint, and never dabbing at it when you are thinking about what you wish to do next. Every stroke counts! Often referred to, with a smile, as a "Birdsall’s Boot Camp."
