Art with Marion Buricatu (Grades 5th-12th)

+ More Info

Join Marion Buricatu via Zoom for four Thursday classes at 3 pm.

Here is how it works:

  • Each student will work on his/her own project.
  • We will use a private shared folder on google drive where everyone can upload a picture of their painting. (If you are unable do this, you can send your picture directly to Marion). 
  • Marion will send a weekly challenge about basic painting skills that will take students no more than 20 minutes to do at home. 
  • Once a week, on Thursday 3pm, we will meet on password-protected Zoom  session and share our projects.  (To learn about Zoom – a super easy-to-use platform – through live interactive trainings, visit this link.) Students are invited to show and tell or ask for feedback/critique, or simply participate in this nurturing, stimulating environment!
  • The meeting will last  up to 60 minutes, but you can leave at anytime.
  • Marion will supply a materials list for new students.

Online Ceramics Hand building II - Saturday

+ More Info

We are going back to the roots of our pottery traditions! Ever wonder how they used to (and still do!) make such beautiful vessels without a potter’s wheel? Join us for our unique online ceramics class where you will learn a variety of hand building techniques (including coil, slab and pinch/pull) in this four-week, project-based, on-line ceramic class. Projects may include decorative and functional coil pots, bowls, or containers, ocarinas, mugs, vases. 

When the session is complete, we will let you know when you can drop off the pieces you create in this class for bisque firing. To finish your piece, you will be invited to a glazing class when the Center re-opens.

Included in the class fee is 12.5 pounds of clay. Students will need to provide their own tools. If you need to purchase tools, we have some basic kits available for $10. Finally, students will need to supply a piece of heavy canvas, wooden board or drywall at least 18” x 18” to work on, and a rolling pin (or fat dowel).

5 Classes Total: (4) 2-hour classes online, plus one in-person glazing class (Date TBA)

First Friday Open Mic (Live Facebook Event)

+ More Info

First Friday Open Mic at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts

JOIN US FOR OUR THIRD VIRTUAL OPEN MIC FRIDAY, JUNE 5!
Hosted by singer-songwriter Jack Byrne. 

Singers, players, songwriters, poets, and storytellers are invited to perform. Bring your friends for a fun and relaxed evening of music. All ages welcome.

This June's feature is Terry Kitchen. 

Called "one of New England's best songwriters" by The Boston Globe, Terry Kitchen creates songs that are portraits of ordinary people and emotions, captured with extraordinary compassion, honesty and humor. His new album Next Time We Meet, which reached #5 on the national Folk-DJ chart, highlights his chiming guitar and intimate vocals while deftly combining the personal and the political, often within the same song. His songs have won the Mid-Atlantic and USA Song Contests and been runner-up in the John Lennon Song Contest, and have appeared in numerous films. He's been performing on folk stages across the country since the 1990s, and in the 1980s he was the leader of the groundbreaking Boston band Loose Ties, whose experiences he recounts in his novel Next Big Thing, called "a great debut novel" by The San Francisco Book Review.
