Summer Studio Art Classes

Week-long sessions for children and young teens begin July 7.  This summer there will also be 3 once-a-week classes for teens and adults during the day:  Intro to Oil Painting, Mixed Drawing, and Representational Drawing.  We will even be having a jewelry making weekend workshop for adults and  older teens!  All classes address the formal elements of fine arts – line, shape, value, color, light and composition – starting with observation and warm-up sketching, and continuing that day’s focus by working on a more detailed project via drawing, water color, acrylics, charcoal & pastels, paper and collage, or 3-D construction in various materials.

Bawdy satire, The Alchemist, at Shakespeare Theatre

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey presents Ben Johnson’s The Alchemist, a rowdy tale of con artists and their gullible prey. This production marks the premiere of Artistic Director Bonnie J. Monte’s new adaptation of the 17th century work. Performances begin August 6  and run through August 24, 2014.

When the merchant Lovewit flees London to avoid the plague, wild antics ensue as Lovewit’s opportunistic butler reimagines himself as Captain Face, a clever character with a “get rich quick” mentality. Face joins forces with fellow con man Subtle and a local prostitute Dol Common. Together, the trio baits a parade of colorful dupes with the promise of gold, including a lawyer’s clerk, a tobacconist, a nobleman, a widow, and religious fanatics. Written in 1610, Jonson’s bawdy, lunatic comedy demonstrates how little has changed about greed or gullibility in the affairs of mankind.

With an ingenious con man plot line, The Alchemist was one of British playwright Ben Jonson’s most successful plays. Along with Shakespeare, Jonson towers above the many influential leaders of English Renaissance literature. Through his plays, poetry, and elaborate masques for James I’s court, Jonson was well-known in his day. He achieved early success with a 1598 production of his Every Man in His Humour, a production which featured a young William Shakespeare as an actor.  Though few written records remain, The Alchemist is thought to have premiered in 1610 and was one of the first plays to be produced by the King’s Men (formerly the Lord Chamberlin’s Men) theatre company when they reassumed control of the Blackfriars’ Playhouse in 1610.
