Self-Expression in Water Soluble Media

Starts:
Ends:
Location: MoonTree Studios
Address:
9638 Union Rd,
Plymouth, In 46563
Description:

An intensive exploration of techniques using three water-soluble drawing media: water-soluble graphite pencils, watercolor pencils, and Tombow markers. You’ll create washes, layer color, and define shapes and shadows. These media and styles are well suited to travel journals. Maren will demonstrate each type of water-soluble medium while emphasizing loose, quick drawings. Accomplish at least one sketch in each of the three media and then combine different media in one sketch. This experience is all about experimentation with the media and doesn’t have to result in a “finished” piece. Maren Larsen, Facilitator Monday-Wednesday, August 21-23, 2017; 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT Please register by Friday, July 28 (Includes lunch each day)

Dispatches from the Pacific: Ray Boomhower Author Talk

Starts:

Location: Community Foundation DeKalb County (2:00); Smith Farms Manor (6:30)
Address:
Community Foundation DeKalb County (700 S. Main St); Smith Farms Manor (406 Smith Dr.),
Auburn, IN 46706
Description:

Hoosier author Ray Boomhower will speak about World War II reporter Robert L. Sherrod at two events sponsored by Eckhart Public Library. Boomhower, the senior editor at the Indiana Historical Society Press, will speak about his new book, “Dispatches from the Pacific: The World War II Reporting of Robert L. Sherrod,” on Tuesday, August 29. He will speak at the Community Foundation of DeKalb County, 700 S. Main St., at 2 p.m., and at Smith Farms Manor, 406 Smith Drive., at 6:30 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public. The book, an intimate account of World War II and the journalists who risked their lives to cover it, chronicles the career of Time and Life correspondent Robert L. Sherrod. In the fall of 1943, armed with only his notebooks and pencils, Sherrod leapt from the safety of a landing craft and waded through neck-deep water and a hail of bullets to reach the shores of the Tarawa Atoll with the U.S. Marine Corps. Living shoulder to shoulder with the marines, Sherrod chronicled combat and the marines’ day-to-day struggles as they leapfrogged across the Central Pacific, battling the Japanese on Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. While the marines courageously and doggedly confronted an enemy that at times seemed invincible, those left behind on the American home front desperately scanned Sherrod’s columns for news of their loved ones. Boomhower has previously written books on the lives of Ernie Pyle, Lew Wallace, Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, May Wright Sewall, and John Bartlow Martin. In 2010 he was named winner of the Regional Award in the annual Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Awards.
