Indaba and M.A.D. Content, Clinton Arts CouncilClinton Human Rights Committee, and Henry Carter Hull Library are pleased to help bring to our shoreline community the critically acclaimed one-act play written and directed by Award-Winning screenwriter, Steve Driffin, called Death by a Thousand Cuts: A Requiem for Black and Brown Men. This compelling theatrical production, featuring professional actors, has sold-out venues in CT and off-Broadway in NYC since 2022. Allegorically told, Death by a Thousand Cuts: A Requiem for Black and Brown Men candidly unearths the raw experiences of melanated men. Drawing from the joy, pain, and the trauma of surviving in America, this is a requiem 400 years in the making.


The play will be performed on the Andrews Memorial Hall stage in Clinton, CT on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at 7 PM. The performance will be immediately followed by a talk-back, facilitated panel discussion where members of the audience can verbally process the emotions and other impacts of this powerful play.


Please click here to view the production trailer. For more information, please visit linktr.ee/m.a.d.content.

Unlock your creativity in this Introduction to Polymer Clay Workshop! This class is perfect for beginners. Join us for a hands-on workshop where you’ll discover the fun world of polymer clay and create a stunning bracelet and earring set. The instructor will guide you every step of the way, ensuring a fun filled experience. Learn how to make a decorated sheet of clay called a “slab” and how to properly sand and cure your creations. Unleash your artistic flair and leave with a unique jewelry set and maybe a new hobby. No prior experience necessary.

Jessica Dickens being the daughter of a mother who paints, knits, crochets and even writes calligraphy, Jessica believed the creative gene skipped her. As a child, she excelled at stick figures, hearts and butterflies. Although she graduated from college with a B.A. in English she never really found her calling. It was not until she fixed a broken necklace with fishing wire and started going to bead shops, she not only discovered jewelry making, but she also discovered the artist she was meant to be. Almost by accident, jewelry making gave her a creative outlet to express herself and she found something that she loved to do.

Currently Jessica works with polymer clay and wire crochet jewelry, highlighting the beauty and rich textures it creates. She designs jewelry by marrying colors and textures that seem an unlikely pair to create eclectic pieces that capture attention.  Jessica believes that each piece becomes an extension of the person wearing one of her designs.  She currently shows her jewelry at Spectrum Art Gallery in Centerbrook, CT

This class begins with collaging a premade birdhouse using papers and other creative objects, feathers, tiny nests, small keys, etc to enhance the piece.We will then move using our collaging skills and techniques to a 3D sculptural art assemblage made by assembling diverse materials and found objects.  Look for vintage game pieces, old, used locks, keys, old glass eyeglass lenses.  Be spontaneous and have fun! From this “scavenger hunt” process a creative theme will pop out for your piece. Supply list available upon registration.Regina Thomas’ collage and mixed media art is a mélange of visual stimuli, colors, and shapes involving different genres from the representational to the abstract.  These multi-layered works portray her view of the world, never realistic, injecting her own narratives, metaphors, and icons.  Regina works instinctually, and her desire is to stimulate and intrigue the viewer, make a connection, bringing their own experiences to the work.Regina has lived and traveled throughout Asia and Europe.  While in London, she attended Richmond University concentrating on the Art Disciplines as well as Studio classes.  Upon her return to the states she continued refining her art through classes and workshops at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), The New Art Center in Newton – MA, South Shore Art Center – MA, West Hartford Art League, Creative Arts Workshop/New Haven, CT, Yale University and The British Art Museum.Regina has been included in many juried exhibitions in New England. Thomas shows in private galleries and has private collectors across the U.S., Europe, South America and Asia. Her most recent shows have been at The John Slade Ely House in New Haven, and The Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook where she also holds classes in collage and mixed media art.

Embark upon a thrilling journey of personal development through creative exploration this spring!

The NHAOPA "Actor's Lab" is a thrilling journey of creative exploration. 


In this dynamic class, you'll delve into a carefully crafted cross-section of acting techniques and practices that center on play and freeing yourself of the critical voice that holds you back from your potential. You will explore your body, voice, emotional reservoir, and other unique personal attributes as tools you can utilize on and off the stage.

The emphasis for spring session is on comedic and dramatic improvisation (Viola Spolin approach), movement and physicality (Viewpoints, Laban, LeCoq), scene work (Meisner, Hagen), and audition techniques for stage and screen.. The course is appropriate for both new and existing Actors Lab students.

Don't miss this opportunity to expand your horizons and unleash your creative potential. Join NHAOPA Adult Acting Coach Lara Morton for an unforgettable experience in the world of adult acting.

“ I am blown away by how quickly my peers are advancing in skill (I seriously can't stop smiling when watching everyone perform.) I am kicking myself I didn't do this years ago, it's shocking how amazing I feel since starting this class.” - Caroline H. (Actor’s Lab Winter Session)

Watercolor pencil will be combined with colored pencil to create detailed, vibrant drawings. Each week will focus on a different color palette and botanical subject. Instructor supplies flowers.

After completing the program in 2010, she relocated to Boston. For the past eleven years she has been teaching a variety of botanical art classes in Boston and the greater Boston area.

This class begins with collaging a premade birdhouse using papers and other creative objects, feathers, tiny nests, small keys, etc to enhance the piece.We will then move using our collaging skills and techniques to a 3D sculptural art assemblage made by assembling diverse materials and found objects.  Look for vintage game pieces, old, used locks, keys, old glass eyeglass lenses.  Be spontaneous and have fun! From this “scavenger hunt” process a creative theme will pop out for your piece. Supply list available upon registration.Regina Thomas’ collage and mixed media art is a mélange of visual stimuli, colors, and shapes involving different genres from the representational to the abstract.  These multi-layered works portray her view of the world, never realistic, injecting her own narratives, metaphors, and icons.  Regina works instinctually, and her desire is to stimulate and intrigue the viewer, make a connection, bringing their own experiences to the work.Regina has lived and traveled throughout Asia and Europe.  While in London, she attended Richmond University concentrating on the Art Disciplines as well as Studio classes.  Upon her return to the states she continued refining her art through classes and workshops at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), The New Art Center in Newton – MA, South Shore Art Center – MA, West Hartford Art League, Creative Arts Workshop/New Haven, CT, Yale University and The British Art Museum.Regina has been included in many juried exhibitions in New England. Thomas shows in private galleries and has private collectors across the U.S., Europe, South America and Asia. Her most recent shows have been at The John Slade Ely House in New Haven, and The Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook where she also holds classes in collage and mixed media art.

This class begins with collaging a premade birdhouse using papers and other creative objects, feathers, tiny nests, small keys, etc to enhance the piece.We will then move using our collaging skills and techniques to a 3D sculptural art assemblage made by assembling diverse materials and found objects.  Look for vintage game pieces, old, used locks, keys, old glass eyeglass lenses.  Be spontaneous and have fun! From this “scavenger hunt” process a creative theme will pop out for your piece.Regina Thomas’ collage and mixed media art is a mélange of visual stimuli, colors, and shapes involving different genres from the representational to the abstract.  These multi-layered works portray her view of the world, never realistic, injecting her own narratives, metaphors, and icons.  Regina works instinctually, and her desire is to stimulate and intrigue the viewer, make a connection, bringing their own experiences to the work.Regina has lived and traveled throughout Asia and Europe.  While in London, she attended Richmond University concentrating on the Art Disciplines as well as Studio classes.  Upon her return to the states she continued refining her art through classes and workshops at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), The New Art Center in Newton – MA, South Shore Art Center – MA, West Hartford Art League, Creative Arts Workshop/New Haven, CT, Yale University and The British Art Museum.Regina has been included in many juried exhibitions in New England. Thomas shows in private galleries and has private collectors across the U.S., Europe, South America and Asia. Her most recent shows have been at The John Slade Ely House in New Haven, and The Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook where she also holds classes in collage and mixed media art.

The emphasis for spring session is on comedic and dramatic improvisation (Viola Spolin approach), movement and physicality (Viewpoints, Laban, LeCoq), scene work (Meisner, Hagen), and audition techniques for stage and screen.. The course is appropriate for both new and existing Actors Lab students.

Don't miss this opportunity to expand your horizons and unleash your creative potential. Join NHAOPA Adult Acting Coach Lara Morton for an unforgettable experience in the world of adult acting.

“ I am blown away by how quickly my peers are advancing in skill (I seriously can't stop smiling when watching everyone perform.) I am kicking myself I didn't do this years ago, it's shocking how amazing I feel since starting this class.” - Caroline H. (Actor’s Lab Winter Session)

Do you know how to protect your intellectual property as an artist? Have you ever needed clarification about commission agreements or how to read a contract? Should you copyright or trademark your art (and do you know the difference between the two)? 

You’re not alone! 

Attorney Bernard Kennedy will answer all these questions (and more) at our next Zoom presentation. 

As an artist, protecting yourself and your creative work is imperative.


Lecturer Attorney Bernard Kennedy is a Roger Williams University School of Law graduate. 


Attorney Kennedy discovered he wanted to become a lawyer while managing a local music group in his early twenties. He remembers researching topics like how to copyright a song, standard terms for record label contracts, and registering and securing copyrights and trademarks. 


In 2023, Bernard became a solo practitioner and opened The Law Office of Bernard T. Kennedy III. Today, serving the creative community is at the forefront of Attorney Kennedy’s practice, providing an inclusive, personalized approach — whether working with a cooperative, individual, non-profit organization, or small business.


This event aptly aligns with our organization’s motto: Art reflects the values and needs of the community it serves. Madison Art Society aims to promote, sponsor, and encourage excellence in the arts in our community, schools, and among its 250 members. This year, the Madison Art Society offered a scholarship to a Daniel Hand High School student pursuing postsecondary education in visual arts.


Please join us and support your local artists and community! 

RSVP Marianne@RTDTECH.com by noon on Mon., April 22, 2024.

This lecture is open to the public. Those who RSVP will receive the Zoom link the day before the lecture (4.24.2024) via e-mail from Marianne@RTDTECH.com.

On Sunday, April 28, 2024, at 4:00 p.m., come and experience one of the region’s most anticipated symphonic-choral events. GMChorale’s Spring Mainstage concert at the Santo Fragilio Performing Arts Center at Middletown High School, will feature Brahms’ “Schicksalslied” (Song of Destiny) - which, in many ways, is like his “Requiem” - and Schubert’s “Mass in E-Flat, No. 6,” his final and most mature composition. This is one of the great Mass settings of all time, and is representative of early-Romanticism with a nod back to the Renaissance and Baroque eras. Under the baton of Artistic Director, Joseph D’Eugenio, GMChorale will join forces with Alchemy, Saecula Singers and Alumnae of the Elm City Girls’ Choir, professional soloists and Orchestra New England. For more information and tickets go to www.gmchorale.org/events.

THE "ACTORS LAB"

Ages 18 & Up

Wednesdays 7pm - 9pm

Spring Semester

 4/10/24 - 06/19/24

$375 per semester


Embark upon a thrilling journey of personal development through creative exploration this spring!

Whether you are a seasoned acting pro who's looking to brush up on your skills or a newbie who's been longing to act we've got you covered! 

The NHAOPA "Actor's Lab" is a thrilling journey of creative exploration. 


In this dynamic class, you'll delve into a carefully crafted cross-section of acting techniques and practices that center on play and freeing yourself of the critical voice that holds you back from your potential. You will explore your body, voice, emotional reservoir, and other unique personal attributes as tools you can utilize on and off the stage.

The emphasis for spring session is on comedic and dramatic improvisation (Viola Spolin approach), movement and physicality (Viewpoints, Laban, LeCoq), scene work (Meisner, Hagen), and audition techniques for stage and screen.. The course is appropriate for both new and existing Actors Lab students.

Don't miss this opportunity to expand your horizons and unleash your creative potential. Join NHAOPA Adult Acting Coach Lara Morton for an unforgettable experience in the world of adult acting.

“ I am blown away by how quickly my peers are advancing in skill (I seriously can't stop smiling when watching everyone perform.) I am kicking myself I didn't do this years ago, it's shocking how amazing I feel since starting this class.” - Caroline H. (Actor’s Lab Winter Session)

Learn how to use holographic foil to enhance your artwork and add sparkle!

The first half of the class instructor shares a sample painting and guide to complete it. Participants may follow along or create their own idea to decorate with the foil. The sample will be an acrylic painting on board of a whimsical nature scene. A drawn-out template is provided on the board to help beginners.

Once the paintings are complete, the real fun begins as we make them pop with holographic magic wand.  Participants learn the basic properties of holographic transfer foil; how to use foil glue (application and drying time); how to apply the transfer foil to the surface and tips for the best effects. Additional ways to add holographic effects to art will also be discussed.

Participants leave with a finished piece with holographic prism foil details.

Megan Emily Ely is a surrealist & fantasy artist based in Colchester, Connecticut and NYC. She is inspired by fairytales, mysticism, nature, dreams, and magic. Her work is primarily oil paintings, but she also utilizes mixed media techniques.

Megan views her art as a medium to add beauty and light in a world that can sometimes be challenging and dark. Her art is meant to spark magic, wonder, and mental well-being. She studied art & design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, and also attended the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine for two summer studios. In her past career she was a design director at Estée Lauder for 10 years and continues to consult in product design. She is affiliated with several artist communities, including the Greenwich Arts Council and the Essex Art Association. Her work has been shown in galleries including a recent show at the Bendheim in Greenwich, Connecticut and is scheduled for various upcoming shows at galleries throughout 2023/2024 including Spectrum Gallery, in Centerbrook, Connecticut.

Embark upon a thrilling journey of personal development through creative exploration this spring!

The NHAOPA "Actor's Lab" is a thrilling journey of creative exploration.

The emphasis for spring session is on comedic and dramatic improvisation (Viola Spolin approach), movement and physicality (Viewpoints, Laban, LeCoq), scene work (Meisner, Hagen), and audition techniques for stage and screen.. The course is appropriate for both new and existing Actors Lab students.

“ I am blown away by how quickly my peers are advancing in skill (I seriously can't stop smiling when watching everyone perform.) I am kicking myself I didn't do this years ago, it's shocking how amazing I feel since starting this class.” - Caroline H. (Actor’s Lab Winter Session)
