Manga Drawing Workshop

Wednesday, March 31st at 6:00 p.m. in the Collins Room

Learn or hone your Manga skills by producing a very creative wheel of characterizations that will create dozens of character looks. And here’s more fun – one of the characters will be an interpretation of you! We’ll discuss drawing of eyes, hair, head shapes, clothing and colors that give Manga its unique style. If you do lots of Manga already, you will create a more complicated wheel with more definitive Manga style. The workshop will be taught by Bruce & Joanne Hunter of the Art Spot in Ridgefield, CT. Open to all teens in grades 6-12.

Please register in person, online, or by phone at (203)265-6754.

Friday Night Flicks Presents: Up in the Air

Friday, March 12th at 6:30 p.m. in the Collins Room

Up in the Air movie posterUp in the Air transforms some painful subjects into smart, sly comedy--with just enough of the pain underneath to give it some weight. Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) spends most of his days traveling around the country and firing people; he's hired by bosses who don't have the nerve to do their layoffs themselves. His life of constant flight suits him--he wants no attachments. But two things suddenly threaten his vacuum-sealed world: his company decides to do layoffs via video conference so they don't have to pay for travel, and Bingham meets a woman named Alex (Vera Farmiga), who seems to be the female version of him and, of course, he starts to fall in love. Up in the Air is light and dark, hilarious and tragic, romantic and real. It's everything that Hollywood has forgotten how to do; we're blessed that director Jason Reitman has remembered.

Rated R.
