The CNY Arts Center marches on toward spring with two more topics offered in Digital Photography 101 with Kendra Matott.
March 19 will cover focus as students learn how and where to focus in a photograph and how depth of field affects what is in focus. March 26 will share composition tips about composing good photos and improving your basic snap shots. Both classes run from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
The next Author’s Spotlight, March 20 at 7 p.m., will feature Rev. Diane Bradshaw as she discusses her book “I Am Arnold, A Controversial Look at a World War II Veteran’s Five-Year Journey With Alzheimer’s Disease.”
Bradshaw graduated from Empire State College with a BS degree and from Colgate-Rochester with a master of divinity degree.
Bradshaw has served as an officer (Captain) in the Salvation Army and as a United Methodist minister in Pennellville. It is her first book.
Bradshaw’s husband, Arnold, received care at the VA Hospital in Syracuse. This intimate recalling of that experience takes an honest look at the care a person who is hospitalized receives and the sometimes anguishing role of a loving spouse.
March Madness and Easter come together in another culinary delight, March 23 from 9 a.m. to noon. Students will have fun decorating basketball cookies and cupcakes, and Easter treats too. Students must preregister for this class. No walk-ins accepted.
March wraps up with another oil painting class with Bonnie McClellan. “Autumn in its Glory” will teach students how to add wildlife to landscapes — a deer, elk, moose or more — March 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
New spring quarter classes will start April 6 with a full roster of art, writing, and culinary classes and a return of Kids OnScreen, the only local film class for kids ages 6 and up. Details will be available online soon for all the spring classes.
Our festival season kicks off with open registrations for our third annual Arts Fest to be held June 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the War Memorial Ice Rink.
