Single-Color Screen Printing: One Day Introduction SUMMER 2015
Description: Ever wanted to make your own custom t-shirt, tote bag, sticker, poster, or greeting card? In this one day intensive introduction to screen printing, you'll learn all the basics and by the end of the day create a screen using your artwork and print a one-color design on your choice of t-shirts or paper. Class Goals: Students will learn all they need to start screen printing at home or in the Asylum's print studio. After an informational overview, students will dive right in to hands-on work so that by the end of the workshop they leave with their own printed products as well as the skills to print on their own. Prerequisites: Students should be prepared with designs/artwork you'd like to print to send in pdf form to the instructor. No previous screen printing experience required. Students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials: Students should bring their own materials to print on for their final project -- t-shirt, tote bag, paper, etc. -- and a $10 materials fee, payable to the instructor, to cover consumables. The instructor will provide materials for test prints and screens and ink, though students have the option of bringing their own. Instructor Biography: Erik Heumiller is a video editor, cartoonist and printmaker. His print experience comes from his years working in a T-shirt shop. He currently works for the local engineering company DGF Technologies, but he still likes to squeeze in some print time whenever he's got a spare moment. Event Time: This one-day session will run multiple weekend days in May, June, July, and August. See drop-down menu for upcoming dates and times. REFUNDS:We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, pleasefill out this form. CANCELLATIONS:Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.

GoPro Educational Series
GoPro cameras are considered some of the best, most versatile cameras in the world. Their size and simplicity are perfect for portability and placement, allowing for a multitude of possibilities from angles of view never-before-seen on camera. However, these cameras take time to master. Knowing exactly what mount to use, at what angle to place the camera, and how to best navigate their seemingly simple menu system can be advantageous when in the correct moment. Our GoPro educational series is meant to enhance your knowledge of the camera and make you better prepared at creating excellent images and videos. In Part 1, we take a look at the cameras and their menus and functions, set up on different mounts, and begin shooting. We place a high emphasis not only on shooting, but how to create a story from a series of shots in Part 1, which we will create through editing. In Part 2, we will review footage shot in the time between the two classes and begin develop a narrative through editing in the GoPro software. By the end of Part 2, students will be on their way toward a finished product, which we will review at the end of the class for content and style. For Part 1, you will need a GoPro camera with a fully charged battery and memory card. For Part 2, you will need a laptop and your GoPro camera (or memory card with an adapter) for reading the videos. It is generally recommended, though not required, to take Part 1 before Part 2.

A History of Howard Johnson's by Anthony Sammarco

Howard Johnson created an orange-roofed empire of ice cream stands and restaurants that stretched from Maine to Florida and all the way to the West Coast. Popularly known as the Father of the Franchise Industry, Johnson delivered good food and prices that brought appreciative customers back for more. The attractive white Colonial Revival restaurants, with eye-catching porcelain tile roofs, illuminated cupolas and sea blue shutters, were described in Readers Digest in 1949 as the epitome of eating places that look like New England town meeting houses dressed up for Sunday. Boston historian and author Anthony M. Sammarco recounts how Howard Johnson introduced twenty-eight flavors of ice cream, the Tendersweet clam strips, grilled frankforts and a menu of delicious and traditional foods that families eagerly enjoyed when they traveled.

Hoot & Holler and Hannah Shira Naiman
Hoot & Holler is what you get when Amy Alvey (fiddle, vocals) and Mark Kilianski (guitar, vocals) combine their playing and songwriting forces. After touring with regional acts Mighty Tiny (Amy) and The Whiskey Boys (Mark), and jamming frequently on Boston's burgeoning string music scene for years, Hoot & Holler was born from their mutual love of American Folk music and Appalachian fiddle tunes. Since its formation, Hoot & Holler have entertained audiences all over the Northeast and Europe.

http://www.hootandhollermusic.com

Hannah Shira Naimangrew up just north of Toronto- a few thousand miles away from the hills of Appalachia- and yet her family home was always full of the sounds from that land. Raised by a banjo plucking Pa, and a children's musician/dance caller/fiddling Ma, her home was a hub forAmerican roots music in the cold heart of a Canadian metropolis.

Despite her upbringing, Hannah took her time coming around a career in folk music. Throughout her youth, amidst a casual dabbling in folk-rock guitar and a half a dozen suzuki fiddle lessons, she focused her energy on training as a professional contemporary dancer and choreographer. After graduating with a degree in Contemporary Dance from Concordia University, Hannah moved to Boston to pursue a career in choreography. It wasn't until her mid-twenties that Hannah's hands fell upon a banjo, and it was shortly after that that she reconnected with her fiddle. Having lived away from home for several years, the tug of this music awoke a homesickness that brought her right back to Toronto, and eventually this desire of hers to reconnect with her roots brought her to release her first album,Tether My Heart(November 2013, Merriweather Records Ltd.).

Hannah found the banjo to be a generous muse, inspiring an abundance of songs laying in wait for her. Listeners can clearly hear how she has harvested the sounds and themes of this music in her bones.Her banjo-driven songs are sorooted in tradition that they can be hard to tell apart from ones found in a backporch jam in the Appalachian mountains, yet her take on this music is informed by her life in the Canadian metropolis of Toronto and by the busy community of cutting edge roots musicians who live there.Her sound has been described as recalling that of Gillian Welch and The Be Good Tanyas and is inspired by Ola Belle Reid and Hazel Dickens. While Hannahs style is decidedly Appalachian folk, shes also influenced by styles outside the genre, such as English and Irish ballads, African spirituals and gospel music, as well as the pop and indie music that filled her younger days-- Leslie Feist, Ani Difranco, and other strong female songwriters.

The Marshall Scholarship Programmewas estabished in 1953 to honour US Secretary of State George C. Marshall and express Britain's gratitude for economic assistance received through the Marshall Plan after World War II. The Marshall Scholarship finances young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. Up to forty Scholars are selected each year to study at graduate level at an UK institution in any field of study. As future leaders, with a lasting understanding of British society, Marshall Scholars strengthen the enduring relationship between the British and American peoples, their governments and their institutions. Marshall Scholars are talented, independent and wide-ranging, and their time as Scholars enhances their intellectual and personal growth. Their direct engagement with Britain through its best academic programmes contributes to their ultimate personal success.

Please join Partners for Youth with Disabilities and The Women's Bureau, U.S. Department of Laborfor an engaging round table presentation and discussion: Supporting Successful Transition for Women with Disabilities. The event will feature presentations from Marissa Drossos, PYD's Young Entrepreneurs Project Director, and Richard Curtis, Vice President of Workforce Development and Talent Acquisition at State Street Corporation. The Need (Stats from ODEP) Neither disability policies designed to ensure employment of people with disabilities nor policies aimed at gender equity in employment have recognized the specific employment barriers experienced by women with disabilities.The inequities are significant: Men with disabilities are more likely to be employed and have full-time jobs, and men with disabilities are almost twice as likely to have jobs than women with disabilities; Women with disabilities are also significantly poorer than men with disabilities, due partly to the fact they are more likely to be unemployed, and also that when they do work, they receive considerably lower wages than men with disabilities
