ART FOR YOUR MIND presents “Children in Art” on Tuesday, December 12 at 1:00 pm. Art for Your Mind is an engaging, educational, art observation experience designed to broaden the minds of its participants. The featured topic, Children in Art, offers an opportunity to enjoy images of childhood from a variety of cultures and time periods. We’ll interpret artists’ creative choices and the many ways they have approached this universal, yet ever changing subject. Join local art historian Jill Sanford for an enjoyable hour of challenging yourself to see in new ways! Please call the Senior Center at 781-834-5581 to sign up. $2 suggested donation at the door.
ART OF FILM CLASS presents "White Christmas" on Thursday, December 14 at 12:30 pm. Irving Berlin wrote the song “White Christmas” way back in 1940. Bing Crosby performed it on…December 25, 1941 on his CBS radio show” (TCM) which soon zoomed to the top of the charts. It’s no wonder Hollywood capitalized it again in the 1950’s with this movie which became the highest-grossing film of 1954 (12 million). “Remembered as a warm, nostalgic holiday movie” (TCM), its star power cast included Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kaye, Vera-Ellen, and Dean Jagger. It was all about putting on a show to save an inn—and an excuse to present some fine, now famous Irving Berlin songs. For us—81or 67 years later-- it will be a seasonal pleasure. Come and enjoy!
