The Music of James Taylor featuring Mark Teachey, is a must see performance for James Taylor fans.

You'll also hear interesting stories about the songs and tidbits about Taylor's life as a boy, growing up in Carrboro, NC. Some of the songs Mark will perform include: "You've Got A Friend", "Fire & Rain", "Sweet Baby James" and "Carolina In My Mind".

Mark Teachey grew up in the 1970's listening to and learning to play James Taylor's music and his great respect for the material shines through in performance. His clear, clean finger picking guitar style is reminiscent of Taylor's, and perfectly complements Mark's pure, nuanced, melodic tenor vocals.

This workshop explores movement within drawing. Through a variety of exercises and short projects, students individually and collaboratively investigate ways to incorporate movement and time within two-dimensional works on paper. Working with abstraction, representation, and the human figure, we employ methods of erasure, collage, gesture, and stop-motion animation to create both implied and actual movement. Basic principles of drawing will be covered, which we then use as a springboard into investigating movement.
