We are open to various models-- series of short vignettes or an evening of longer performances. We anticipate that the series will take place in May and June and that we will support four to six productions.

SOMERVILLE ARMORY SEEKS ART INSTRUCTORS - March 1, 2015

The Armory's Youth Arts Arise program is looking for local artist instructors to instruct our spring session workshops in a wide range of disciplines, including both visual and performing arts. Workshops are currently scheduled for Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 3:30-5:00 pm, April-June.
We are also looking for artist interested in offering workshops during the week of July 6-10th.

Youth Arts Arise is a free arts education program that offers multi-disciplinary artistic workshops after school and during the summer for youth ages 11-19. Older youth will have an opportunity to participate in a mentoring/peer leadership role. Workshop themes will encourage self-exploration through investigation of the participants' individual and cultural identity as well as exploring other cultures, traditions, and diversity.

Artist instructors will teach either Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Workshops take up two or three Tuesdays or Wednesdays, depending on the time needed to accomplish the project. The stipend for artist instructors is $60 per workshop day.

Are you an artist who'd like to teach in the program? Contact us! Email education@artsatthearmory.org or call (617) 718-2191.

CREATIVE SOMERVILLE SERIES - February 25, 2015

The Creative Somerville Series

http://creativeunionsomerville.us9.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=a180f310ddf12efe0fe868f2e&id=ddababe3d4

is a series of “fireside chats” with local creatives and entrepreneurs in design, tech, food, social impact and other fields–celebrating the creative and entrepreneurial energy that makes Somerville great. The Creative Somerville Series is not your typical power point and Q&A. Our free fireside chats are about getting to hear someone’s story, learning about how they think and create, and getting to share creative energy and ideas in an intimate setting. The events are co-sponsored by the Somerville Beat and Somerville Local First.

Upcoming Events

Superpower Shenanigans & Public Space Playtime
A Conversation with Katarzyna Balug, Co- Founder, Department of Play
Wednesday, February 25, 7 p.m.
@ Aeronaut Brewing Company (14 Tyler St., Somerville)
Free, but space is limited, so reserve your spot now.

Katarzyna Balug is an artist and urbanist whose practice flows from performance, installation, and sculpture to teaching, civic design and planning research. Inspired by science fiction worlds and informed by urban planning studies, Balug’s work addresses the urgent need for imagination in urbanism. Department of Play runs temporary play zones (TPZs) that bring people together to imagine collectively and share their visions of the future. Their recent BLOCK PARTY in Union Square invited Somervillians to “consider key built elements for the first Martian dwellers.” Their forthcoming installation for the Fairmount Corridor will take place on the train, a space that is “passed-through but unmemorable” as a starting point for imagining other forms of co-existing in a crowd. Balug’s work has been shown at venues including the Muzeum Sztuki in Lodz, Poland, at the Boston Arts Festival and at FARO Tláhuac in Mexico City.

A Florist’s Path: The Beauty & The Dirt
A Conversation with Rose Mattos and Erin Heath, Founders of Forêt Design Studio
Thursday, March 19, 7 p.m.
@ Aeronaut Brewing Company (14 Tyler St., Somerville)
Free, but space is limited. Tickets will be released soon.

Forêt Design Studio is a floral & event styling company based in Somerville, MA founded by best friends Rose Mattos and Erin Heath. With their background in creating visual displays at Anthropologie, the ladies consider themselves “concept-driven” designers creating unique inspired events that are both cohesive and yet imaginative. Both are self-taught florists drawn to the natural elegance of seasonal flowers, fruiting branches, ripening berries and turning acorns. Each year, they work with local growers to choose the coming season’s bounty thus creating true “seed to table” arrangements. The ladies of Forêt have written for Design* Sponge and their clients include IDEO, MIT Media Lab, Society of Grownups, Style Me Pretty, BHLDN, and Anthropologie. Thei r work has been featured in Magnolia Rouge, Domino Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Boston Wedding Magazine, Boston Home Magazine, Design New England and on the Somerville Beat. In 2014, they were named Best Wedding Florist in Boston for both Boston Magazine and theImproper Bostonian.

RECYCLE ARTIST HAS STUFF TO GIVE AWAY... AND NEEDS STUFF

I am a recycle artist and people give me their old stuff to use in my doll making and classes. Over the years I have accumulated a weird collection of stuff that I just have no use for and need to get rid of for my own mental health, but I don't want to trash it. Please see list below for what I have and what I am looking for myself:


I HAVE:

- box full of old metal stuffs and such/some old bits of toys and plastic as well as parts stripped from old computers and phones. Lots of cords and probably old chargers and phones. Not sure at this point.

- fabrics/old clothing- mostly smaller pieces of fabric and some larger pieces as well, scraps and decorator samples, some squares and rectangles intended for quilting. maybe some old tees.

- random clothing sizes from kids to plus.

- smallish random bits of wood.

- some lace I'm willing to part with very cheaply.

- lots of denim scraps from someone who makes skirts from jeans

- some beige knit tubing (for easy skirts/tops/head wraps etc.)

- various pieces of brown and green camo.

- piece of red stretch lace (maybe 2-3 yds)

- pink sheer curtains ( not sure of size or condition) could be used in recycled dressmaking.

- massive roll of bubble wrap..... Please save me from the bubble wrap!!!!!!
-

FOR SALE CHEEEEEEP!

- huge number of sewing patterns, including:

vintage, historical, costume, bridal, evening, sleep wear, etc. Mostly women's/some larger/plus sizes, kid's and men's as well.


Willing to do some bartering for the pieces I intend to keep. Always looking for new fabrics and such. See list below:

I Need:

PLEASE WARN ME IN ADVANCE IF YOU HAVE FURRY PETS - THE FUR AND DANDER TENDS TO AFFIX ITSELF TO THINGS AND HIDE IN FABRIC ITEMS AND I AM USUALLY KNEE DEEP, ITCHING AND SNEEZING BEFORE I REALIZE IT. I will need to be prepared for how to handle items.


- tiny quilt/sewing scraps (any colors/patterns) ethnic prints would be highly prized.

- yarn (any color and size, any length)

- any sewing, needle point, cross stitch. macramé, knitting supplies you don't want.

- old junk jewelry ( broken or parts missing or unstrung are all welcome).

- those old Mardi Gras beads everyone keeps, but does nothing with.

- old (used is okay) greeting cards.

- old socks/stockings/pantyhose. Must be laundered.

- acrylics (paint or pastels) don't care if used.

- old paint brushes (dried on paint is okay).

- glues or tape of any sort you don't want, even small bits.

- any type of art or printer paper you want to get rid of. (Used is fine)

- old pillows/comforters or plush toys/dolls that have seen better days and to be discarded ) CLEAN PLEASE. :)

- string and rope (any type or length).

- old buttons (any kind)

- old, frames or ugly pictures in nice frames :D

- would sell my old dead mother for an old fashioned pencil sharpener like the teacher used to have bolted on his/her desk and/or sewing machines and sergers.

- old rusty washers, cogs, bolts and the like

- old dolls and doll parts (any material okay)

Some of the fabric may be cut into squares and rectangles because I was going to make bags, but never got around to it. There are pink sheer curtains
