$20 – $50

Bennett Konesni is known throughout Maine and around the country for his work collecting, teaching and sharing work songs-- particularly with working young farmers and sailors whose bodies move in time to these historic rhythms. What came first, the work or the song? We will learn and sing together in a beautifully acoustic space, and then bring our songs out to the fields while we pick blueberries. Attendees will be served a beautiful farm lunch and can take home blueberries and a songbook to keep the music flowing.

In this workshop, our goal is to understand nature by directly participating in nature as intimately as we can. This is an opportunity to engage with the natural world by walking and making art within it. In response to St Andrews and The Bay of Fundy’s diverse natural environment, we will ‘walk and make’ daily at various locations. Jan will guide you in making ephemeral land art utilizing materials from each site’s immediate surroundings such as sand, driftwood, litter, seaweed, stones and foliage. We’ll also review the evolution of land art, from plein air painting (Claude Monet) to contemporary environmental art (Andy Goldsworthy, Richard Long) as well as ‘walking’ art (Hamish Fulton). Those who would like to draw or paint ‘en plein air’ as well as photographers will also benefit from this workshop. ‘Works in progress’ as well as finished landworks will be documented via video. No experience necessary!

This workshop will offer insights into the dangers of vaping, and will share resources and information to help educate the public and assist them to quit.
