SAGE Acrylic Painting Workshop
with Jack Doughty
Jack and Ruth are experienced (but not professional) acrylic paint artists and they are willing to share tips, hints, and help to get started on a project or to finish one you just can’t get the motivation to complete. If you don’t have a project or the materials to start one, join us anyway. If you do not need materials, the $5 fee will be returned to you at the first class. Experienced artists are also welcomed to participate and share your expertise.
SAGE CanAm Crown Dog Sled Racing in Aroostook County
with Dr. Nick Pesut VMD
As part of the first session I will show a documentary DVD of the 2008 CanAm Crown races. I showed it this year, and I think people enjoyed it. It was professionally produced and very well done. The remaining time would focus on sled dog racing, the history of the CanAm races, and plenty of time for questions and dialogue.

with Guy Gallagher
The words we use every day, as well as our more sophisticated vocabulary, carry their history with them. They were marinating in the mouths of our ancestors as they pillaged and plundered, struggled to survive, and built civilizations. While analyzing the DNA of our words, we can regain contact with their deeper meanings and connotations. Along the way, we can learn some Latin, Gaelic, and Greek.
