SNAP is excited to promote the SNAP Giving Tree, a new and creative fundraising effort giving you the opportunity, through your contribution, to support SNAP programs. Because of the pandemic, SNAP has had to cancel their spring concert, which is a major fundraiser for the organization.  Their hope is that by offering this new fundraising strategy, with many donation levels, they will be able to maintain the valuable arts and music programming to our special needs family, neighbors and friends.  

Selecting a SNAP Giving Tree “flower” will direct you to the SNAP donation website where you can indicate, in general, which type of feature appeals to your interest.  Of course, you can always submit a general contribution or enroll in SNAP’s Monthly Giving program by going to SNAP’s home page (www.snaparts.org) where there is a link to their Network for Good page.  

All Giving Tree, general and monthly donations are used to sustain the SNAP organization and programming.

SNAP is one of the only programs in our area that provides recreational opportunities to individuals with special needs from teenagers to seniors.  SNAP celebrates the talents and achievements of individuals with disabilities and seeks to raise awareness of the contribution they make to the cultural richness of our community.  

Founded in Lexington in 1981, SNAP is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of people with disabilities through direct involvement in music and the arts.

Ben Soule has had a life-long interest in the Civil War and for anyone living in the United States of America, that piece of history is still present. Ben’s presentation, “My Civil War Stories,” is about the many moments in his life when the Civil War has reached out from the past and touched him. Travel with him to places as varied as a fort in Boston Harbor, an antiques store in Georgia, a cemetery in Denver, the Lincoln Memorial, and a historic house in Lexington Massachusetts. Meet a remarkable cast of characters from a Boston poet to a Chief of the Cheyenne Nation, from a boy sitting on a fence by a dusty road in Pennsylvania to the Great Emancipator himself. Please join him for the premiere presentation of “My Civil War Stories.”

For a good year now, First Parish church services have come to you via Zoom, YouTube, or Facebook. The music—played by Rip Jackson and other instrumentalists, sung by the choir, the children’s choir, and various soloists—has continued to be a vital part of church. But have you ever wondered how everyone involved has managed to sing or play together when we’ve all been spread out—Rip’s in Florida, Amy’s in DC, Paul’s in South Carolina, Mary’s in Vermont—and basically stuck inside for months on end? Chris Hess, the audio and video wizard behind the music, will describe how this particular bit of sausage is made in the weeks before a piece is part of a service.

Contemporary Approaches to Watercolor I and II
Online

Contemporary Approaches to Watercolor Workshops I and II can be taken together or as separate workshops. 
They are for everyone who would like to experience watercolors. It will offer a number of projects that use this medium in an experimental and very enjoyable way from learning to use stencils, layers, salt and a variety of texture creating materials. In addition to exploring the medium of watercolor, students will find inspiration in textiles, surface designs, patterns and the natural world. Students will be able to work both representationally and abstractly. 


Workshop I will focus on how to use stencils, how to create textures with variety of materials and introduce drawing as an integral part of making an image. We will use gel pens and acrylic markers to integrate the drawing element into the watercolors. 

In Workshop II students will be able to try liquid watercolors and gouache in addition to traditional watercolor paints. The workshop will focus on using nature inspired themes and using natural elements to create patterns and more abstract compositions. 
In both workshops students will be shown images of contemporary artists using the medium in very inspiring and unexpected ways.

Taught by Boriana Kantcheva

Workshop I, June 6, Sunday 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm $65 (ages 16+)

Workshop II, June 13, Sunday, 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm $65 (ages 16+)
