Fair Haven Arts Center Events

    By on January 5, 2016

    If you missed the free classes held at The Fair Haven Arts Center during Christmas break – you missed out on a unique opportunity. During one of the morning craft classes, Mary Durocher had the class making professional looking “primitive snowmen” in an hour -thanks to help from her husband, Rick who provided the cut out wooden materials! Gail Calcagnino and her husband taught a class making “Teasel creatures” out of plants we find outside in nature. In the afternoon, Will Boydell got people, young and old, drawing – some for the for the first time.

    This week the Arts Center is offering the first class in a series of three Photography classes which will be held on January 9, 16, and 23 from 12- 2 p.m. These classes are just in time to get people ready for the Winter photo contest being sponsored by the Fair Haven Arts Center in February. (The winter photo contest is part of the Fair Haven Chamber of Commerce Winter Festival). Classes will be held at the Fair Haven Arts Center at 562 Main St. in Fair Haven and will be taught by Morgan Bond. The first class includes “getting to know your camera” and what makes a good picture. The second will deal with composition and editing, and the third will cover editing, downloading and discussion. All three classes may include opportunities to take photos outside and ask questions. Morgan graduated from SUNY Oswego with a BFA in Fine Arts and received an MLIS from Syracuse University. Morgan has taught photography classes in Oswego and specializes in wedding and nature photography. People may attend all three classes for $50 or may attend a single class for $20 per class. For questions or to register for the class, please call Pat Hanford (947-5701) or Deale Hutton (947-5233) or email the center at fairhavenart@gmail.com.
