179 Maplewood Ave, Maplewood, NJ
When: June 14, 2012

In honor of Fathers' Day, Words is hosting author Buzz Bissinger, whose son Zach has spent his life attending special schools. He’ll never drive a car, or kiss a girl, or live by himself. He is a savant, challenged by serious intellectual deficits but also blessed with rare talents: an astonishing memory, a dazzling knack for navigation, and a reflexive honesty that can make him both socially awkward and surprisingly wise.

A signed copy of Father’s Day would make a great gift for Dad!

Life Drawing

Location: 5 Mead St, South Orange, NJ 07079
When: Daily
Time: 1:30 pm–3:30 pm

Life drawing is a study of the human form in its various shapes and postures. It is a practice that dynamically engages the artist with angles and proportions of the body. We will draw from live models each week and do both gesture and longer-term drawings. We will use charcoal as well as experiment with brush and various paint and ink media. There will be a critical focus on line, structure and value. Students of all levels are welcome.

Taught Monday through Friday for two weeks by Larry McKim.
