Holiday Watercolor Class

Hazel Jarvis is back for a two-part watercolor class on Friday, December 1, and Friday, December 8, from 9:30-11:30 am. This is a two-part class; please register for both parts. (While participants can attend only one class, preference will be given to those able to commit to both as the two classes will be closely connected, with the projects building upon and reinforcing each other.)

Ms. Jarvis received a BA in History and Theory of Art from Sussex University in England. Upon moving to the United States, she studied botanical illustration in New York and, during a five-year residency in Tokyo in the 1990s, studied traditional Japanese painting.

Ms. Jarvis lives and teaches in Greenwich, Connecticut.  For more information, visit her web site, and for an up-to-date view of her artwork,  follow her on instagram @hazeljarvisstudio.

Give Yourself the Gift of Mindfulness

When you are in a hurry, are you saving time or losing time? Come join us on Tuesday, December 5, in the Youth Services Program Room, Radcliffe Children’s Library, for a Mindful Moment during the holiday rush to reclaim your time and your center. The class will be taught by Dr. Nancy Boksenbaum, a Clinical Psychologist, Relational Psychoanalyst, and Mindfulness/Meditation Teacher. You’ll learn simple mindfulness techniques to help you savor time even during all the hustle and bustle. It just might be one of the best gifts you give yourself and your loved ones.

Dr. Nancy leads mindfulness meditation seminars in the workplace, home, and community. She recently taught “Awaken Your Senses” at Greenwich Point.

The New York Holiday Singers Present Sounds of the Season

To get you into the holiday spirit, we’ve invited the New York Holiday Singers to perform a special holiday concert: “Sounds of the Season: A Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa Holiday Concert.” Join us on Monday, December 4, at 7 pm in the Youth Services Department, Radcliffe Children’s Library, Perrot Memorial Library.

The New York Holiday Singers are NYC’s most in-demand contemporary carolers, seen singing all-new versions of holiday favorites on Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning, Fox 5 NY, NBC New York, and at Loews Regency New York, Bryant Park, Hermés, Dolce and Gabbana, Godiva, and hundreds more private and public events throughout the tri-state area. The Singers were formed in 2009 by Greg Kefalas and Jen Arvay Kefalas, the husband-and-wife team behind New York Holiday Singers, Inc. And, not to brag, but thanks to the hard work of dozens of Singers over the years, we’ve done nothing but grow since.

To reach their goals, the Singers hold auditions in the summertime and begin rehearsing in late summer, working every week until Thanksgiving to master their massive and challenging songbook. It’s a truly different approach to holiday entertainment and a lot of work, but it all comes together in the most fun and beautiful holiday vocal entertainment in New York City!

Please register for this free event.
