Digital Music (Sam)

Music is always moving forward. Just when you think it will settle into one particular form, it creates a new form of expression. During this time, music has not only taken on a new form but has moved into a greater way of expression.

In this class, you will be using an online Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) to create, edit, and finalize pieces of music that simply express your personal creative sound. There’s always the opportunity to record live instruments, vocals, and use sound samples. We will have brief workshops at the beginning of class to try out new techniques, one on one support, and a bit of a musical show and tell.

I love music and you can find me listening to music on a daily basis. I’m currently working on a new project and looking to host a music podcast in the near future.

NOTE: You must have a computer that is capable of running the software used in class.

Please come and check with me. Thanks

Studio with Scobie (Scobie)

Handmade Galaxy Mobile Sculpture - Cool Design For Your Cool Home by Skysetter Mobiles | CustomMade.com

If you are interested in designing, making, drawing, craft, sculpture, technology, working with your hands, eyes, and mind as an inventor, creator, artist, and engineer; if you want to make beautiful things, and learn what makes things beautiful…  Studio is the place for you.

I’ll be teaching three different terms of this class, and you can take just one term, or all three of them!

Designing, sculpting, drawing, and making things takes time, but if you’re like me, it’s time that is totally absorbing. If you have a really heavy schedule, you can minimize the work for this class….

However….I’ve listed this class as having significant outside work and there’s a special reason for that:

I’m really hoping to give you new things to do outside of class that feel GREAT to work on, that are really absorbing, that you’ll  want to spend time on. With all the time we spend at home these days, how about some new, challenging, and fun projects that are wonderfully distracting, meditative, and absorbing?

I don’t know what all the projects will be, but I CAN tell you about our first project, one I’m super excited about….

Our first project starts off as an electronics and maker project that will let you assemble, test, and calibrate your own miniature potter’s wheel. The you’ll turn some small corner of your room or your house or your porch into a tiny little pottery studio and make some beautiful objects. I’ll be picking up your work from the school when it’s dry and getting it fired into permanent pottery. Making pottery on a wheel is totally mesmerizing. For some of you, it can just be an exploration, or a chance to make some gifts. For others, it might become a lifetime passion!
