Craig Zipperer will be teaching a high school only drawing class for the first 2 weeks of summer school. June 10th-21. Monday-Thursday.
Description: City in Perspective, Week 1
Perspective Drawing of the downtown areas of Milltown, Centuria, and Balsam Lake will be the focus of this class. Day one will be a review of perspective drawing in the classroom followed by the first of 3 field trips. The days following will involve 2 additional field trips to surrounding towns that will give students the opportunity to sketch the environments around them in correct proportion. On the final day of class, students will select one of the towns to complete as a final. In case of bad weather, students will draw from photos of the towns in the shelter of the classroom.
Drawing in Nature, Week 2
Capturing the outside environment of the campus of Unity School District through drawing is the focus of this class. Students will experience drawing outdoors through direct observation. Final drawings will be created using chalk pastels, charcoal, and graphite.

Over 150 people attended the 2nd Annual Midsummer Celebration held at Lamar on June 23, 2012. Thanks for helping us re-establish this classic nordic celebration of the longest day of the year with a flower bedecked Midsummer pole, music, food, and a presentation on the "Lore of Midsummer by Carolyn Wedin.
