What’s Happening at CNY Arts Center?

Arty Camp had its largest enrollment to date with more than 40 youths attending every day last week. More exciting camp plans will be created for next summer’s fun, but for now there is a great lineup of classes and events for every age and interest.

Michael Lynne’s new class, Painting Fundamentals I, scheduled for last week, has a new start date of Aug. 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. It’s not too late to register for this class, which will continue Sept. 5 and 12 from 6 to 9 p.m.

With his work on display at the Oswego Public Library as well as the Arts in the HeArt Gallery in Fulton, this unique artist shares his expertise with students.

This class will brighten your use of color, explore color mixing approaches, experiment with layering color and share Michael’s expertise for controlling the use of edges.

September brings a closeup look at the artistry of the Cashore Marionettes in a special demonstration at 7 p.m. Sept 6.

The artist, Joseph Cashore, will give just 40 audience members a guided tour of the detailed workings of his most popular marionettes. These are not simple puppets but rather each one a finely crafted moving piece of art.

Some marionettes take as long as a year to engineer and build. Seating is limited to just 40 so that all audience members can see up close and appreciate the beauty of this art in motion. This is not for young children!

Our popular outdoor Arts Market returns from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 14 in the old Nestles parking lot.

One last chance for bargain shopping, yard sale treasures, arts and crafts, Christmas gifts and a great shopping experience on Fulton’s City-Wide Yard Sale Day. There is still room for vendors who want in on the action. Register at CNYArtsCenter.com.

A brand new slate of classes is being planned for the fall including popular culinary adventures, Writing Critique Workshop and capturing memories in story and in collage.

With a generous grant from the Shineman Foundation, we’re excited to offer a new Drama Club for seventh and eighth graders meeting 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at the Arts Center.

This great new activity is open to all seventh- and eighth-graders in the area regardless of school or home school affiliation. This group will work throughout the fall to develop a new theater group for teens with a production scheduled for mid- November. The club will meet at CNY Arts Center located in the State Street United Methodist Church.

More new classes on tap for the fall including popular culinary adventures, Writing Critique Workshop and capturing memories in story and in collage, Story time art and Kids Onstage, which will return from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 21, all taking place at the center located at 357 State St.
