http://www.berkshirecc.edu/images/berkshire-immigrant-stories-postcard.jpg

Berkshire Community College has received a grant from Mass Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for a pilot project - Berkshire Immigrant Stories. The project goal is to collect and share the stories of recent local immigrants (1965 and later) and their children and grandchildren through an online exhibit and archive called “Your Story, Our Story,” developed by the Tenement Museum of New York.

Share your story: add to the ongoing story of immigration in the Berkshires. Take a photo of an object from your family history and tell the story of the object.

The Tenement Museum in New York has created an online exhibit featuring immigration and migration narratives. Visit yourstory.tenement.org to upload your image and story. Please use the tag Berkshire_Immigrant_Stories.

BCC and the Berkshire Athenaeum will provide hands-on help with photographing objects, writing stories and submitting them. These workshops are free and open to the public. Food and drink will be served.

rec_paintpalette02 6:30 PM Art Lesson with Janet Schwartz- Release Your Inner Artist     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Department   413 499-9480 ext 202   info@pittsfieldlibrary.org
   

"Simple Techniques to Release Your Inner Artist" is a hands-on workshop designed to help adults overcome the stumbling block of perception and focus on seeing what is really there.Participants learn to simplify what is seen to capture the essence of the subject. Working with pastels, Janet Schwartz guides participants to see their subject in darks, lights and mid-tones rather than focusing on the individual’s perception of what objects should look like and overcomplicating their work.Through a series of images that are more and more in-focus, each participant will create what initially looks like an abstraction but gradually evolves into something more familar. 

Free and open to the public.

This program may be approved for Forum Credit for Berkshire Community College Students. We will update as soon as we know.

Preregistration is required and participants must be at least 18 years old. Registration is limited to the first 18 participants.

You may register for this class by clicking the Register button and entering your library card number or you may email the Reference Department at info@pittsfieldlibrary.org or call 413 499-9480 during regular business hours.  Your card must be current in order to register for classes
