    Digi-Lab (Digital Media, Drawing, and Painting

    Salt Lake City, UT - Visual Art Institute

    Digi-Lab introduces students to the basics of creating art with digital based methods. In this course we will be using technology including iPads, Mac Computers, 3D Printers (ELEGOO), Laser Cutters (Glowforge), and Vinyl Cutters (Cricut). Students will be designing and creating their ideas using Ipads we provide with an accompanying apple pencil for ease of use. Students will become familiar with Nomad (3D Modeling) and Procreate (General Drawing) applications used on the iPad. If Students have these applications, iPad, and Apple Pencil, they are more than welcome to bring their own equipment. Students can expect to complete at least three main projects. 1. Laser Cutter project. This project is where students can learn the capabilities of the laser cutter for engraving images and cutting through acceptable material. This project may be expanded into several projects where materials can be layered to form a scene or whimsical creature from the students imagination. 2. Sticker Project. Students will be able to design a sticker from scratch using their own ideas. They will design the sticker in Procreate. From there we will incorporate different methods to format and layout the stickers for cutting on the Cricut cutting machines. 3. 3D Printing Project. In Nomad, an application on the Ipad, we will be working to design a 3D object. The object that we create in the digital space is possible to become a real object through the help of a 3D Printer. We will be using a resin printer which uses a UV hardening liquid to create highly detailed objects. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, Digi-lab is worth getting a hands on look at what is possible with digital creation. We look forward to having you there!

    Color and Compostition

    Salt Lake City, UT - Visual Art Institute

    Color and Composition is a course focused on color mixing, color schemes, and how to design a compelling work of art.  We will be focusing on small projects (often 1-2 per night) that explore a specific concept).  Because this class is focused more on concepts than an actual medium, you are welcome to use any medium that you are comfortable with in this class, or a combination of several different media. Some possible options include: colored pencil, watercolor, marker, acrylic paint, artist crayon, pastel, etc. I will demonstrate with a variety of different materials, but projects can be completed with any media.

    Dr. Strangelove | Free Film Screening | The Electric Film Series

    Saint George, UT - The Electric Theater Center

    The Electric Film Series officially hits the halfway mark of a spectacular 2024 season as it returns to the Electric Theater on Tuesday, June 18th at 6 PM (Doors at 5:30 PM) with a 60th-Anniversary screening of an iconic classic from one of the most celebrated filmmakers of all time; "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” (1960) -------------------------------------------- Directed by the legendary Stanley Kubrick, this razor-sharp Cold War-inspired satire stars Peter Sellers, (who actually plays three roles in the film, including the title character), George C. Scott, and Sterling Hayden in a movie about an unhinged military man who orders a bombing attack on the Soviet Union even though those in the war room question his sanity. It is, quite simply, one of the great movies of all time. In fact, famed movie critic Roger Ebert has stated on multiple occasions that he believes it sits alongside “2001: A Space Odyssey” as Kubrick’s masterpiece. High praise indeed and well-deserved. Experience “Dr. Strangelove” on the big screen and see for yourself! Per usual, we at The Electric Film Series aren’t just about the movies themselves. We’re also all about film history and context and as such, with each of these screenings we have a very special guest on hand to introduce the title of the evening and to lead a post-screening discussion. Our special guest for this particular screening is actor/storyteller/magician, Trey Paterson. Mr. Paterson is a huge fan of this seminal classic from the legendary Stanley Kubrick so you can expect plenty of noteworthy insight during what promises to be another magical night at the movies. Be sure to arrive at our “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb” screening a little early and order an optional menu item from Riggatti’s to enjoy during the post-screening discussion or, you can feel free to take the pizza home with you following the movie. We hope to see you all there!
