Dreaming of Summer: Enroll in Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Summer Arts Program!
Early-bird discounts available through March 30
Jazz, Rock, Musical Theater, and Music Technology Classes among offerings
As winter continues its icy grip, what better time of year to start making plans for summer?
Hoff-Barthelson Music School’s Summer Arts Program (SAP) provides budding musicians in the 2nd through 10th grades multiple opportunities for artistic exploration and friendship. Taught by top-flight faculty, offerings include instrumental classes, chamber music, chorus, large ensembles, visual arts, rock, jazz, musical theatre, and frequent performance opportunities. Students at all levels receive instruction in a program individually tailored to their needs and interests.
“Unfettered by schoolwork and the scheduling challenges often faced during the school year, SAP students have the latitude to try additional instruments, experiment musically, take lessons every day, and perform each week,” says Joe Piscitelli, the program’s dynamic director. “Consequently, they’re able to make tremendous progress and develop lasting friendships over the program’s five weeks (June 25 – July 27, 2018).”
Registration is currently underway; Early-bird discounts are in effect through March 30, 2018.
Mary Margulis-Ohnuma, mother of three SAP participants shares “For many years now, our family has planned our summers around the kids attending Hoff-Barthelson’s Summer Arts Program. The program offers opportunities to work with a world-class faculty in a fluid format that catalyzes learning. SAP provides a warm and welcoming environment that is at once familiar from summer to summer and yet also manages to provide new challenges from year to year.”

“We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination,” Leatrice Eiseman, PANTONE Color Institute.
Zeitgeist is descending to downtown New Canaan this season with “18-3838”, a group exhibition featuring works by Charles Arnoldi, John Clement, Leah Durner, Matthew Heller, Madeleine Keesing, Martin Kline and Jill Moser. These artists have been gracing Heather Gaudio Fine Art’s roster with their personal styles and individual processes. Now, for the first time, they will be brought together to showcase a visually rich installation that is as dynamic as it is au courant. The exhibition will open with a public reception at 4-6pm on Saturday, March 24th and will run through May 5th.
Last December, PANTONE declared 18-3838 Ultra Violet as the official color of 2018. The blue-based purple pigment shade is known to evoke spiritual and meditative reflection, as well as elicit cosmic and futuristic outlooks. Culturally, it has also been associated with individuality and acts of rebelliousness. Never stagnant, Ultra Violet is original, enigmatic and it is only natural that it draws the creative mind. It is therefore no accident that the artists in this show have gravitated to this color over the course of their careers. Works in this exhibition date from the last two decades, the most recent completed before 18-3838 became the official color of 2018.
The artists in this exhibition have achieved a defined style through a skilled understanding and use of the material and its properties, their subject matter emerging from the gesture. Whether as painters using encaustic, enamel or other pigments in liquid form, or as printmakers or sculptors, they share an exploration of abstraction and ideas. Starting with contemplation and meditating on their processes, these artists then allow for chance to play an integral part in the overall compositional structure. One outlier in the group may not fully conform to this description, however, his work manages to find an entry point to the show thematically. These artists invoke a confluence of the current spirit unified by the thought-provoking purple shade.

Lillian Huang is a self-taught modern calligrapher based in Nyack, New York. She picked up brush calligraphy three summers ago while living in Taiwan, with no art or design background. It started off as a creative and therapeutic outlet, however, in the last year, she felt called to create an off-line creative community to share her love for lettering in the form of workshops. Lillian hopes to share this therapeutic art form with those like herself, someone who thought art was intimidating and out of reach (it’s not!).
Are you looking for a new creative outlet or simply a relaxing activity to unwind from the week? Then this brush calligraphy workshop is for you!
Brush calligraphy is a modern form of decorative lettering that utilizes a brush pen with a flexible tip to achieve the thick and thin lines found in traditional pointed pen calligraphy.
In this introductory workshop by Lillian of Lillian Liming Design Co., you’ll learn the basics of brush calligraphy – from foundational brush strokes to forming and connecting letters. Lillian will share her tips to help you develop your own style as well as a few fun ink blending techniques to bring your lettering to life!
1 Starter Kit, including 2 brush pens, workbook/practice sheets, and a 5×7 notecard
In-class use of instructor’s personal brush pen collection
Exclusive access to Lillian’s private Facebook group where you’ll receive more tips & resources to improve your lettering!

Gun violence in America is disproportionately frequent relative to other developed countries. School and large scale shootings make the news most dramatically, yet access to guns impacts the lethality of domestic violence, the frequency of completed suicides, and contributes to the death of over 95 people per day. This panel discussion will focus on reducing gun violence via legislative and advocacy efforts.
