Photoshop FUN: Review of Basics & More
6:45 PM - 8:15 PM

 

The Northborough Free Library is offering a new 6-part series of classes on Photoshop FUN: Review of Basics & More on Tuesday evenings from 6:45 pm – 8:15 pm from February 20th - April 3rd, 2018. The classes will be held in the Library’s Conference Room located on the main floor. The classes are open to those aged 14 and older who are interested in learning how to use Photoshop Elements to edit their photographs. The classes will be taught by photographer Jeanine Vitale whose studio, Prism Point Photography, is located in Northborough. The following topics will be covered in the classes:

 

  • Review of basics: Cropping, burning, dodging
  • Clone tools, selection tools, edit/transform
  • Basic layers
  • New ideas: Blend modes, reflections and shadows, handling type, paths and shape layers, actions

Note: Photoshop Elements 2018 MUST BE PURCHASED prior to the first class. The cost is $69.99/license. Older versions are also acceptable.   

Please also note: There will be no class held on March 13th.  

Those interested in registering for the series can register online via the Library’s website at www.northboroughlibrary.org or call Adult Services at 508-393-5025 x5. PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE FULL SERIES ON THE FEBRUARY 20th EVENT LISTING BY CLICKING ON "REGISTER."

The registration fee is $45 per person, payable in advance at the Library’s Check-out Desk to The Trustees of the Northborough Free Library. Class size is limited, so early registration is encouraged! 

Photoshop editing is a marvelous tool and is as essential to photography today as a good camera. It’s used to enhance and “fix” portraits and scenery (i.e. removing facial imperfections or straightening a horizon) as well as creating art works.

Jeanine Vitale has at various points in her artistic career been an opera singer, choral conductor, make-up artist, artistic director, dancer and choreographer. Her solid background in the performing arts has given her an ear to hear and an eye to see and remember the stories of life unfolding around her. The camera’s eye is the continuation and extension of her artist’s soul and skills.

Prism Point Photography, formed in 2005, is Ms. Vitale’s commercial studio for portrait work, events, theatrical photography and fine art photography. Feeling strongly about giving back to the community, she also photographs for various charities: Rebuilding Together Worcester, the First Congregational Church in Shrewsbury, the Northborough Free Library and others. Her memberships include BNI (Business Networkers International), ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), the Women’s Art Forum in Hopkinton and the Arts Alliance in Hudson. Her work currently can be seen at the Danforth Art Museum gift shop, Petersham Craft Center, private collections and on her website. Ms. Vitale also has taught singing for over 30 years and continues to do so at her studio in Northborough.

If you have any questions about the classes, including how to purchase and obtain a licensed copy of Photoshop Elements, please contact Jeanine Vitale directly at jeanine.vitale@gmail.com and she will be happy to answer them.

Spring Music Series: BrassBoro
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

 

BrassBoro, the premiere Brass Ensemble in the Boroughs area, is a 10-member band that plays music in the quintet style. Members are made up of some of the finest brass players from the Interboro Community Band. BrassBoro’s charter is to bring great music to the community. Members range in age and experience, but share one key attribute – their love of  music.

Now in its second year, its members are from Central Mass.and mainly consist of engineers and trumpet players with music degrees. BrassBoro players volunteer their time and play for the love of music. 

BrassBoro's philosophy is simple: Music requires both people to make the music, and people to listen to it. Their goal is to bring great music to the local community. They play an eclectic mix of music from classical to jazz, with some patriotic and pop mixed in for good measure.  Of course, they don’t avoid marches either! 

BrassBoro has played at churches, assisted living communities and at community gathering places such as libraries and senior centers.  This is BrassBoro’s first concert with Northborough Free Library, and we are certain it won’t be the last! Please join us for the first concert in our Spring series!

Photoshop FUN: Review of Basics & More
6:45 PM - 8:15 PM

 

The Northborough Free Library is offering a new 6-part series of classes on Photoshop FUN: Review of Basics & More on Tuesday evenings from 6:45 pm – 8:15 pm from February 20th - April 3rd, 2018. The classes will be held in the Library’s Conference Room located on the main floor. The classes are open to those aged 14 and older who are interested in learning how to use Photoshop Elements to edit their photographs. The classes will be taught by photographer Jeanine Vitale whose studio, Prism Point Photography, is located in Northborough. The following topics will be covered in the classes:

 

  • Review of basics: Cropping, burning, dodging
  • Clone tools, selection tools, edit/transform
  • Basic layers
  • New ideas: Blend modes, reflections and shadows, handling type, paths and shape layers, actions

Note: Photoshop Elements 2018 MUST BE PURCHASED prior to the first class. The cost is $69.99/license. Older versions are also acceptable.   

Please also note: There will be no class held on March 13th. 

Those interested in registering for the series can register online via the Library’s website at www.northboroughlibrary.org or call Adult Services at 508-393-5025 x5. PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE FULL SERIES ON THE FEBRUARY 20th EVENT LISTING BY CLICKING ON "REGISTER."

The registration fee is $45 per person, payable in advance at the Library’s Check-out Desk to The Trustees of the Northborough Free Library. Class size is limited, so early registration is encouraged!

Photoshop editing is a marvelous tool and is as essential to photography today as a good camera. It’s used to enhance and “fix” portraits and scenery (i.e. removing facial imperfections or straightening a horizon) as well as creating art works.

Jeanine Vitale has at various points in her artistic career been an opera singer, choral conductor, make-up artist, artistic director, dancer and choreographer. Her solid background in the performing arts has given her an ear to hear and an eye to see and remember the stories of life unfolding around her. The camera’s eye is the continuation and extension of her artist’s soul and skills.

Prism Point Photography, formed in 2005, is Ms. Vitale’s commercial studio for portrait work, events, theatrical photography and fine art photography. Feeling strongly about giving back to the community, she also photographs for various charities: Rebuilding Together Worcester, the First Congregational Church in Shrewsbury, the Northborough Free Library and others. Her memberships include BNI (Business Networkers International), ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), the Women’s Art Forum in Hopkinton and the Arts Alliance in Hudson. Her work currently can be seen at the Danforth Art Museum gift shop, Petersham Craft Center, private collections and on her website. Ms. Vitale also has taught singing for over 30 years and continues to do so at her studio in Northborough.

If you have any questions about the classes, including how to purchase and obtain a licensed copy of Photoshop Elements, please contact Jeanine Vitale directly at jeanine.vitale@gmail.com and she will be happy to answer them.

Spring Music Series: Jeff Snow: The Softer Side of Celtic
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

 

Growing up as the son of a drummer in a Bagpipe band and in a home where older Celtic songs were the everyday sounds, Jeff Snow developed a love for the music of Scotland, England and Ireland. His concerts  have been described as “quiet and relaxing " and much of it is, but sometimes he'll break out and the foot stomping begins. Jeff is a talented multi-instrumentalist who plays the music and tells the stories behind the songs. He plays six and twelve string guitar, autoharp, Celtic Bouzouki & Bodhran.  Jeff also plays the drums and a variety of other percussion  instruments. A skilled guitar player, Jeff was featured in the August 2006 issue of Acoustic Guitar Magazine. Please join us for the second concert in our Music Series and help us celebrate Celtic music and the coming of Spring!
